On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast as a Category 4 storm. Harvey was one of the top three most expensive hurricanes in U.S. history, causing an estimated $70 – $180 billion in damage. The SR-3 leadership team is committed to raising a special BSA fund to help local councils most affected by Harvey – Sam Houston Area Council (Houston), Three Rivers Council (Beaumont), Bay Area Council (Galveston), and South Texas Council (Corpus Christi).
The Section is offering two patches for sale. The silver border patch is $10 and the gold border patch is $100. All proceeds will be used to help rebuild and restore BSA facilities and programs.
