                     Grand du Texas Continues Hurricane Harvey Relief

 Many jumped into action to provide assistance to victims of Hurricane Harvey whose devastation covered a large area of the Texas Gulf Coast and inland for many miles.  Thousands were in temporary shelters and many still remain in temporary housing while they rebuild.

In the spirit of La Societe, who has historically helps in areas forgotten by others – such as Carville Star, the Grand du Texas has selected the Aransas County Independent School District as the recipient of our Hurricane Harvey Relief.  We cannot help everyone and Grand du Texas decided to focus on a small area where we can make a significant difference with our donations. 

Suzanne Ransleben is Executive Director for the Aransas County ISD Education Foundation and reports “Rockport Fulton schools in Aransas County Texas were devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Rockport and Fulton were ground zero, and our five campuses have catastrophic damage. Buildings are missing, supplies gone.” 

With millions needed to replace or repair critical structures destroyed or damaged by Hurricane Harvey the funds they are raising via the Rockport Schools Hurricane Fund “Fund Me” account stand at just over $90,000.  This is a place where anyone can donate and they have received donations from 500+ donors which includes other schools from within Texas. 

We have been in direct contact with officials from Aransas County ISD and identified specific areas where our donations can make a significant impact on many of the 3316 students enrolled from Pre-Kindergarten through High School. 

             Grand du Texas aims to help with the replacement of technology needs in the

                 Aransas County Independent School District with a goal to raise $20,000.

Please send donations payable to Grand du Texas to our Grand Commissaire Intendant:

Thank You to all of our Donors.  Grand du Texas is less than 300 members at this time.  We are growing, but most Voiture Locales are small so any donation is greatly appreciated as well as donation from other organizations, individual members and those from the community who are helping us achieve this worthy goal!  

We are a 501(c)(19) charitable organization and your donations are tax deductible.


Thank You Again for your Generosity!
