No words can adequately express any of our feelings or emotions as we ascertain the damage and impact of Hurricane Harvey. The numerous emails, calls and text messages from all of you have been heartwarming, but not surprising. I value each of you not only as a colleague but as a friend.
The STPGA office survived the storms with only negligible damage. All staff members and their families remained dry with just a few minor inconveniences. We did have one Section Vehicle that was flooded. Overall, we feel extremely fortunate.
Many of you have inquired about how you can assist.
- PGA Members, or any individual, can help by donating to the PGA Disaster Relief Fund at PGA.org.
- The STPGA Office will also accept clothing or other donations to help any golf industry personnel impacted by Harvey.
- Gift cards can also be sent to the Section Office. The Section Officers and Executive Director will be responsible for determining the distribution of any of these gifts. Donations of this type are not tax deductible but you should always consult a tax professional in making this determination.
The STPGA Office has resumed normal operating hours beginning Thursday, August 31. Please feel free to reach out if we might be of assistance anytime.
