Helping Texans Better Their Lives is the motto of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. Our Extension educators serve every county of Texas, providing the programs, tools, and resources to teach people how to improve agriculture and food production, advance health practices, protect the environment, strengthen our communities, and enrich youth.
Now, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and the devastating damage it left behind, more than 200 of our employees are working tirelessly to help our communities recover from one of the worst natural disasters this country has seen.
Many of those same employees rescuing stranded livestock, collecting feed and supply for displaced animals, and leading donation efforts for displaced families have, themselves, been displaced from flooded or damaged homes, lost personal belongings and taken refuge in the same shelters they have helped establish. A future natural disaster could result in similar consequences to Extension employees.
Help Us Help Them
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has established an Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) to provide financial assistance to those employees of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service experiencing financial hardship due to impacts natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey. These funds are intended to help employees impacted by natural disasters return to work and resume the mission of Extension Education.
The Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) has been made possible through the support of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension agency director and generous donor contributions to support employee recovery needs.
How Your Donation Will Help
The EAF will help Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service employees meet immediate financial needs as they recover from damages from natural disasters.
