Hurricane Harvey Relief
Doing the Rite Thing The Scottish Rite is providing immediate relief to Masons and their families affected by Hurricane Harvey Your Scottish Rite is assessing the ongoing needs of our Masonic Brothers in Texas, and is sending immediate relief to help those affected by the massive flooding and destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey. This aid from the Grand Almoner's Fund is being sent to help Freemasons, their widows, and their families with urgent needs such as food, water, and clothing. "Hurricane Sandy and the 2016 flooding in Louisiana taught us that that accessing cash is a real problem for the displaced," said Sovereign Grand Commander David A. Glattly. "Our Brothers in Texas who are leading Masonic relief efforts tell us the same is true in this situation. We have Brothers who are without homes, cars, clothes, food, work places, churches, and do not know what today or tomorrow will bring. Many have lost almost everything."
"Recovery is expected to take months, if not years," said the Commander. "We will work closely and deliberately with the Southern Jurisdiction to ensure these funds are used to help our Brothers put their lives back together. The vision of our fraternity remains firmly committed to the most fundamental of our values--caring for one another. "
