To everyone who contributed to the flood relief fund for AVH employees, THANK YOU! We have now closed the online fund, but we cannot let this moment pass without telling you how deeply you've touched our hearts. Hurricane Harvey brought devastation to many of us who live and work in the Beaumont area, but what we will remember most are the many thoughts, prayers, words of encouragement and gestures of support you have given us.
Almost $45,000 has been raised since the fund was established on August 30, 2017. Our Committee of Concern has reviewed all the assistance applications received, and in September funds were distributed to 26 employees. Remaining funds will go to help these families in the form of gift cards for groceries, supplies, and things they will need as new homes are built and damaged homes are repaired.
Friends, neighbors, family members, business associates, employees throughout the AMERICAN family of companies -- you all came through for us. And several sent offline donations directly to the committee.
Although the online fund is now closed, the committee will continue to accept donations. To donate directly, make check payable to Committee of Concern Employee Fund and put AVH on the memo line. Mail to:
