As the rains have stopped and the flood waters begin to recede along the Texas gulf coast, there remains a lot of work to be done, and a long road to recovery for thousands of Texans. But sometimes healing can come via a piece of normalcy among the chaos, and the Texas A&M Aggies are trying to offer just that. For victims, volunteers and first responders who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey, A&M is offering free tickets to one of the Aggies first two home games.
UPDATE: These free tickets, more than 18,000 of them, have all been claimed.
The Aggies begin the season on the road this year against UCLA on Sunday, Sept. 3, but return home to face Nicholls State at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, and Louisiana Lafayette at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16. Here’s hoping folks can get a few hours of joy in what has no doubt been a horrific and trying time.
More importantly, our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to everyone affected by this disaster, not only for the past week, but for the weeks ahead as homes and lives are put back together. While news coverage may soon wain, they will need continued support. Click here to learn more about ways you can contribute.
