The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey to the States of Texas and Louisiana has affected tens of thousands of people. We in North Dakota have been through a number of floods in the past twenty years and know the feelings of loss and devastation to families and communities.
With this in mind, I ask each council in the State of North Dakota to support the relief effort by contributing funds through the Disaster Relief Fund managed by the North Dakota State Council. Please write your checks to the ND State Council and make sure that in the memo line you enter Texas/Louisiana Flood Relief. Send checks to Mike Steiner, North Dakota State Treasurer, 2938 Southgate Drive, Fargo, ND 58103.
Although the need for support will continue into the months and possibly years ahead, I have set October 15, 2017 as the deadline for the state contribution to be completed.
Please give generously not only with material support, but also with your prayers.
