HOUSTON - The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo plans to donate $2 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, rodeo officials announced Wednesday.

These include the Texas Farm Bureau’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund for Agriculture, Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation, Texas FFA Association, Houston SPCA, Greater Houston Community Foundation and United Way of Greater Houston.
