ARS Hurricane Harvey Funds

Raising funds for victims effected by hurrGood afternoon,

As you all know, Hurricane Harvey has created devastation across Houston where many of our fellow ARS employees have lost everything. ARS has created the “Adopt a Family Program” for each branch to “adopt” an ARS employee and their family in need. AJ Perri has “adopted” Donnie Babin who has been a plumber with ARS for 27 years. Donnie unfortunately lost everything- his house, everything in it, and his two vehicles. Luckily him and his family (his wife and two daughters) are safe and in good spirits, but are starting over as they lost everything. We are happy to help Donnie and hope you can help him as well in any way that you can. We created a GoFundMe page for Donnie but will also be sending items or gift cards to him in Houston. We are collecting any new household items, such as: blankets, towels, sheets, etc. Please make sure any items you donate are new and not used. During ARS Week we will be collecting donations for Donnie during the wellness screenings but you can also donate at any time to the GoFundMe page. Below is also a picture of Donnie and his family. Thank you to everyone who has already donated this morning.  We know Donnie appreciates all of the help we can give.
