Harvey Relief Fund - CES Employees

On Friday evening, August 25th, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, as a category four hurricane; the largest hurricane to hit the area in decades. Our employees, and so many others in the Houston and surrounding areas, are going to be dealing with the impact of this storm, and the resulted damage, for a long time to come.

36 CES employees were affected by the storm. Fortunately, many of them fared well. However, 2 CES employees have suffered severe loss to their homes and belongings, and require support through this difficult time.

We have received requests from many of our employees asking what they can do to help their peers. CES and its employees have supported one another through several natural disasters with money, clothing, and on-site assistance. The GoFundme platform will allow a coordinated effort in support of our employees during natural disasters today and going forward as needed.

CES will contribute to the relief funds, and the collective funds raised will be dispersed evenly, or as requested by those impacted by the disaster, and as identified by our internal team of employees and managers closest to the situation.

Many of our employees have contributed to other organizations such as: the Red Cross, Save The Children, Relief Aid, etc. Your donation to any organization is appreciated and valued. Your participation in the Relief Fund for CES employees is strictly voluntary.  

Thank you in advance for any contribution you choose to make – big or small.  Every little bit will help support our CES community in the Texas area as they aim to pick up the pieces, and rebuild.
