One employee lost everything. Another had a foot of water. All three are in need of assistance. There is much suffering in the greater Houston area, and this is one way to help.
Our goal is to attract donations from friends, family, and friends of friends outside of Houston and around the globe, who might not donate otherwise. We are seeding this fund with $5000 to help cover replacement clothes, cleaning supplies, staples, flood insurance deductibles, FEMA loan payments, and other personal items.
Funds will be directed to the affected employees. We will also provide gift cards (Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-Mart) to the affected employees of our clients.
One facet of our company Purpose is to help our community, and this is an opportunity to put words into action. We're pulling together as a team to help each other out, including the tough manual labor. The flood damage is heartbreaking but the response of our teammates and the community is inspirational.
Assistance from the red cross and other charitable organizations is wonderful. If you don't feel comfortable contributing to this fund, I hope you'll donate to the Red Cross - https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-harvey.
I'm Stephen Sweeney, and we live in Friendswood, Texas, one of the hardest hit areas. I went to Clear Lake High School in Houston, and Brother Martin High School in New Orleans. I have undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Virginia. We were fortunate and were not flooded. Please find a way to help, wherever you are located.
