Hurricane Harvey Information
Dear Westlake Chamber Members,
Does your business have a location or branch in the areas impacted by Harvey? If so, the Texas Association of Business (TAB) is working to help coordinate efforts for assistance, specifically for businesses impacted. CLICK HERE to submit a request for assistance to TAB’s statewide membership. Please note: You can post to the same link if your business has resources to offer in support of the affected areas and businesses.
TAB has also established a hotline for businesses to connect to the resources they need as the rebuilding begins. The hotline can be reached at 512-637-7714 and is available to all businesses and not just limited to TAB members.
For those interested in providing donations, please note that shelters aren’t currently equipped to process or store donated items at this time. Below is a list of local organizations coordinating outreach programs.
To those impacted: We want to help you get back in business as soon as possible as we begin the rebuilding in the following weeks and months. To all of our members offering support: Thank you! We are proud of our Westlake business community for supporting our fellow Texans in this time of great need.

Humanitarian Services Projects
Our members have donated time and effort to a number of philanthropic projects through the years including Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Habitat for Humanity, the Capital Area Food Bank and many more.
Should you wish to have your organization considered for one of our projects, please contact Emily Ballenger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Westlake Chamber has partnered with
the Westlake High School Student Council
to fund a canvas cottage at Community First! Village.
Mobile Loaves & Fishes' Community First! Village is a 27-acre master-planned community that will provide affordable, sustainable housing, and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas.
