When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25th, it was recorded as one of the most devastating hurricanes int he history of the United States. As it made way into Southern Texas, much of the region was hit with torrential rains, unprecedented flood waters, and forced evacuations of residents that were caught in the storm. Even now, large areas of Houston, Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, and more were absolutely devastated by the damage.

Even today, much of the areas are still largely effected by the flood waters. Homes, vehicles, schools, and more have been lost in the devastation caused by the storm. Today, Roblox has called upon its community in this time of need and has offered a way for fans of the game to help out. The team has started their campaign with Direct Relief (who teamed up with developer Bungie) to offer a way for their fans to give back.
