Republican Party of Texas Launches #RPTServes Week to Meet Needs of Those Impacted by the Current Crisis
AUSTIN, TEXAS — The Republican Party of Texas (RPT) is once again gearing up for #RPTServes Volunteer Week, set for April 27-May 2. This coordinated service week highlights RPT’s ongoing effort encouraging every Republican in Texas to come together and serve their neighbors to make a tremendous impact across the state.
#RPTServes is an initiative of the Republican Party of Texas that was started in 2015 to utilize its statewide network to give back to the community in a multitude of ways – from statewide service days to a highly organized and coordinated effort to provide volunteers, food, and other resources to our neighbors struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Today, the Republican Party of Texas is answering the call, this time to come to the assistance of Texans in need and those who are most at risk from the COVID-19 virus.
Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:
“During Hurricane Harvey, #RPTServes delivered volunteers, food, and other vital resources to communities in need. A pivotal part of that effort was #RPTServes Volunteer Week. Now that our state and nation are facing unprecedented challenges, we will be launching RPT Serves Volunteer Week again April 27th through May 2nd to deliver food, resources, and most importantly hope to our fellow Texans.”
Recognizing there is much that we as a community can do to assist and affirm the most vulnerable during this pandemic, RPT is suggesting several specific projects for families to engage in to make a difference in their community, including blood donations and support of local food banks and pregnancy centers.
From statewide leadership down to precinct chairs and voters in each and every neighborhood in Texas, the Republican Party of Texas is putting its values in action by serving our neighbors in this time of hardship. Working together, we can connect those who are in most need of help and assistance with those who have the ability to help and offer assistance.
