The Story

LaGrange, TX

The La Grange Area Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary business membership organization that is dedicated to developing the local community and developing a stronger economy. By helping businesses be successful and promoting the community, the Chamber of Commerce’s goal is to make La Grange a better place to call home. Following the catastrophic devastation of Hurricane Harvey, the Chamber of Commerce is turning their attention to providing disaster relief for those in Fayette County that were affected.

On August 25, Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the coast of Texas. The powerful storm swept through causing massive flooding throughout southeastern Texas. By August 30, the Colorado River rose to heights not seen in over 100 years. In La Grange alone, nearly 10 percent of the homes in the small city were damaged, along with many businesses. In addition to their homes, many families also lost their cars, clothing, and other personal items. “The last time flood waters came through this bad was 1913,” said Allyson Davis, Chairman of the Board. “Majority of the folks here do not carry flood insurance because they have never seen this type of flooding.”

The La Grange Area Chamber of Commerce hopes to raise $100,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase food, clothing, hygiene items, and other necessities to help the families in Fayette County affected by Hurricane Harvey rebuild their lives and get back on their feet. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and sharing this story today. By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help uplift those tragically dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey!
