Governor Abbott Proclaims September 12th As “Hand In Hand Day” In Texas To Help Those Affected By Harvey
“Texans are known for their can-do spirit and generous hospitality,” writes Governor Abbott in his proclamation. “In devastating events such as Hurricane Harvey, we see the true nature of Texans on full display. But there is even more we can do. Now that the rescues are over, the response must continue. It is my pleasure to commend the many musicians and individuals involved in this event for their efforts. Through the proceeds raised, we will rebuild the Lone Star State and make it greater than ever before.”
In addition to the proclamation, Governor Abbott will participate in the Hand in Hand Telethon to raise funds for victims of both Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The Telethon will be broadcast across the nation on Facebook live this evening.
