Mayor Arrigo Calls on Residents To Support Victims of Hurricane Harvey; Bring Requested Items to the Veterans Services Office By Thursday

August 28, 2017

Dear Revere residents,

We are all horrified by the images of the devastating flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. I am calling upon all Revere residents to stand in solidarity with our fellow Americans by supporting efforts to assist those in need.

If you are able, please donate to the Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund  http://ghcf.org/hurricane-relief/.

Additionally, Mayor Marty Walsh and the City of Boston are coordinating a “Help for Houston” drive, and Revere will be participating.

The following items will be collected:

  • Toiletries
  • Diapers
  • Baby formula
  • Non-perishable food
  • New clothing and blankets

Please bring what you can to the Veteran’s Services Office at the American Legion Building, 249R Broadway, Revere by Thursday, August 31.

Marc Silvestri and the Veterans Services Office will deliver these items to the City of Boston’s collection points, and the items will then be immediately sent to those in need in Texas.

Your support is appreciated as we join with the City of Boston to assist those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Thank you for your generosity.


Sincerely,

Brian Arrigo
Mayor, City of Revere
