Tourism body comes forward to help rebuild Harvey damages

Published on : Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Hurricane HarveyHurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas Gulf Coast wiping out many of the states’ top tourist attractions. Thousands of people lost their jobs and now they’re waiting for you to help get them back to work after the devastation.

 
CEO of Tourism Cares Mike Rae said they’re working with the Texas travel industry to repair the damage Harvey caused to many Gulf Coast’s areas that are popular with tourists.

 
“The damage was caused especially to some of the islands and Rockport and Port Aransas. Tourism is essential to the economies and getting tourism back, rebuilding it, is going to be a big part of the recovery.”

 
So they have started a fund to kick start the area’s tourism industry.

 
The Texas Travel Industry Association is going to work with local destinations to see what’s needed and administer the funds.

 
Rae says millions of visitors create and support 170,000 tourism jobs in that region of the state. The money you donate is going to rebuild damaged attractions and cultural tourism non-profits.
