First Lady, Second Lady to visit Coastal Bend for continued hurricane relief

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence will travel to Texas tomorrow to continue their efforts in assisting those affected by this year's devastating hurricane season.

Upon arrival to Corpus Christi, the two will participate in a meet-and-greet with first responders who are part of the Hurricane Harvey recovery effort.  Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Pence will then travel to Rockport, Texas to meet with a family whose home was destroyed in the hurricane, and tour the home's remains.  They will also see the family's new Manufactured Housing Unit, provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which will serve as the family's temporary residence until they can move into a new, rebuilt home.

Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Pence will also visit a local elementary school, touring classrooms and speaking with faculty and students about the hurricane.  The two women will conclude their day in Texas with a stop at a local food bank to meet with volunteers and help sort boxes of donations.

"The effects of the hurricane season are still being felt throughout southern portions of the United States and in Puerto Rico, and residents still need our help," said First Lady Melania Trump.  "While I am heartened by the strength and resilience of those impacted by the storms, I will continue doing all that I can to lend a voice and shine a spotlight on those who need assistance to rebuild and start new family traditions.  As Christmas and the New Year approach, I encourage people to lend their time volunteering or providing financial support to those still reeling from the hurricanes."

"Our hearts are encouraged by the people of Texas and their continued enthusiasm to help each other pick up the pieces and rebuild after Hurricane Harvey," said Mrs. Karen Pence.  "I am looking forward to the opportunity to accompany the First Lady in Texas and to visit with families and their children in the communities most impacted by the storm.  Our thoughts and prayers remain with the people of Texas."
