Houston Relief Fund

The Houston and Galveston Texas area is experiencing the worst natural disaster in America’s history, as they battle Hurricane Harvey. Thousands have lost everything, and millions will be recovering from this disaster not for weeks or months, but for years.

Protecting our critical infrastructure and supporting the FBI mission is the foundation of InfraGard and the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association. Together, as one family, we can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association and the InfraGard Members Alliance family are teaming to bring some relief to our brothers and sisters in the affected area by setting up pathways for goods and monetary donations.

Our organizations are teaming with the City of Birmingham, Alabama to collect and deliver non-perishable goods like canned foods, canned dog and cat food, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and baby and adult diapers. Our goal is to fill two 53’ trucks starting today through Sunday, September 3 from 7am – 6pm. (shipments accepted from online retailers)
