the devastating impact Harvey had on our community.
We recognize how critical Hope Village is to the community
that they serve and we are happy to be able to
join Senator Taylor and AT&T to help in their restoration
efforts.”

empowering environment for their residents, and
we are incredibly fortunate to have an organization
with this level of integrity and compassion reside in our
community,” said Senator Taylor, a Hope Village board
member since 2000. “I am so grateful to AT&T, Calpine
and my golf tournament participants and sponsors for
their generous contributions to help Hope Village in
their recovery. I look forward to continuing my partnership
with Hope Village and helping them in their very
worthwhile mission.”
