Tennessee Volunteers are known to lend a helping hand or offer assistance to those in need. Right now Texas and Louisiana are in the midst of a terrible disaster and could use your support.
The UT Disaster Relief Management Team coordinates directly with officials from affected communities to ensure collected funds are used in the way that is most helpful for the people impacted.
Funds received on VOLstarter will go to The University of Houston’s Cougar Emergency Fund to support students at the University of Houston who have been directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Donations to this fund will be used to provide comfort and ease to students who find themselves with hardship as a result of the storm.
The university is not collecting material donations. If a specific need is identified, we will update our Volunteer community of opportunities.
