Philadelphia (CW Philly) — In the midst of the destruction wrought by Hurricane Harvey through large parts of Texas, Beyoncé is coming to the aid of her hometown.
Beyoncé, who was born and raised in Houston, has pledged to do whatever possible to help those affected by the historic flooding.
“My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help,” she said in a statement to The Houston Chronicle.
She added, “I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD is a philanthropic initiative that provides support to communities in need, be it clothing, counseling, housing or medical assistance. In 2016, during the Flint, Michigan, water crisis, the organization raised more than $80,000 toward relief efforts.
Days before, the singer took to Instagram for a post:
