Outreach Continues to Texas State Flood Victims


SAN MARCOS – With nearly $10,000 collected through the Maroon & Gold Annual Fund for Flood Relief, contributions continue to help students, faculty and staff impacted by the Hays County flooding over the Memorial Day weekend.

Texas State University opened Bobcat Village Apartments to members of the university community who suffered loss or damages because of floodwaters. Texas State has housed more than 200 people who are students, faculty and staff – and their family members – in the university-owned apartment complex, said Margarita Arellano, associate vice president of student affairs and dean of students. Another 35 community members have taken up residence elsewhere in the area.

“We have been providing them with monetary assistance and information to relief resources,” Arellano said. “We are still awarding assistance because people are still seeking help. People have been very appreciative.”

On June 4, volunteers, including Texas State Development Foundation Trustee Carol Huntsberger, organized free meals to families living temporarily in Bobcat Village.

Donations are still needed to help affected families, and those interested in assisting members of the Texas State community impacted by the flooding may donate at http://donate.txstate.edu/flood.

    Thanks for all that are helping someone!We were affected at Welfare-near Boerne, on the Little Joshua Creek where we had our 15 ft. creek become about 120 yards and 12-15 high!We had water come into our main house and take out everything in it’s path from a player piano to 6 couches,etc.and then the water creeped into everything up to 3-4 feet. We had 8 cars under water and floating from our 1993 ex uhaul veicle which was stopped by our 83 Chevy pickup!We only had insurance on our one Suburban-another older one 83 we only used on our ranch,a RV that normally we don’t cover when not using-but accidentally left full coverage on it!We discover something new missing or remember where is the buggy seat we had resting on a cut tree in front?!We both graduated in 1964 and 1968 with Drama-Speech degrees!
