Hurricane Harvey

President Keefe Urges Support of Hurricane Harvey Recovery 

 Date Published: Aug. 30, 2017

OLG ShrineDear UD community,

Over the past several days, Texas’ coastal cities and residents have endured one of the
strongest hurricanes to hit the United States and make landfall in more than a decade. Houston
and much of the Texas coast has been left temporarily paralyzed as record-setting floodwaters
have exceeded the rooflines of single-story homes, submerging vehicles and hundreds of
roadways and highways.

A great number of University of Dallas alumni, their families and loved ones, as well as families
of current students, call Houston and Texas’ coastal regions home. We also have university
trustees, friends and donors who are experiencing the terrible rains and flooding caused by this
tremendous storm. Additionally, it appears that other states and their coastal regions may be
impacted as the week continues. Our thoughts, prayers and steadfast support are with you all.

In response to the recent devastation, I urge the entire University of Dallas community to get
involved and contribute to the Hurricane Harvey recovery effort. Contact your local parish and
join in their relief efforts, donate to the National Council of the Society St. Vincent de Paul’s
Disaster Services Corporation (DSC) here, or give to one of the many Catholic Charities
branches most affected by Hurricane Harvey here. You can also donate your blood through the
American Red Cross. My thanks to Bishop Edward J. Burns of the Diocese of Dallas for his
assistance in directing us to the various aid agencies.

Students in the Office of Student Affairs are currently crafting a prayer banner to ship to the
University of St. Thomas in Houston. We will be organizing additional efforts to support the
hurricane recovery in the coming weeks. Please continue to pray for those who have lost loved
ones and for the safety of all relief workers.

As we begin the new semester, we are reminded to stand strong together and to help those
most in need of our support.

 

Sincerely, 

Signature

Thomas W. Keefe, Esq

President
