A portion of every October membership has been donated to the Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas. The Alley Theatre's Neuhaus performance space, lobby, the basement with dressing rooms and props storage, and vital electrical systems are all under ten feet of water from Hurricane Harvey. The Theatre is closed for the foreseeable future. Our donation will be for this recovery.

BakerRipley is a local Houston charity with deep roots in the community. They were there in the immediate aftermath of Harvey. And, working in collaboration with other agencies, they pick up after the initial emergency responders and work on helping people restart their lives.
