[californiadisasters] Harvey Relief Fund for Texas Division of Emergency Management Staff



Our Seva, a nonprofit in North Texas, has setup this page to support staffs of the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) that have directly been affected by Hurricane Harvey. These are TDEM families from south Texas with significant damage and loss to their homes and possessions. The Our Seva volunteer family has always been strongly supported by emergency managers through their service to our community projects. We now want to support the TDEM emergency management family that is dealing with this unbelievable loss.

** 100% of proceeds with go directly to the families impacted by the storm and not Our Seva. The proceeds will then be split among the impacted families. Emergency management professionals work behind the scenes to coordinate disaster response and put in many countless hours to help our fellow citizens during disasters.
