Rise Enterprise Colleagues in Houst

As all of you are aware, the flooding and damage in Houston is substantial.  With Houston and the surrounding areas being a large market for Rise, we have several employees in the area, two of which are fellow Enterprise Account Executives Eric Plata and John Gant who have been impacted by the flooding and damage.  Both Eric and John are dealing with substantial damage to their homes, the costs to evactuate and find shelter, and thier top priority of keeping themselves and their families safe while the storm continues.

I am personally putting together this fund to assist them with covering costs for their immediate needs while they work to get their families through this disaster.  A little bit can go a long way, please contibute what you can to help cover the out of pocket costs that both of our colleagues are having to put up while they deal with the hurricane.  

This is not a Rise sponsored innitiative and is in no way affiliated with the company.  This is us helping as individuals and friends of our colleagues.  


To comply with the GoFundMe security process I am adding the following information to help prevent fraud related to raising funds for individuals impacted by the hurricane:

This fund was setup by Fred Barnes from Denver Coloardo. I am a colleague of Eric Plata and John Gant. 100% of the proceeds from this fund will be distributed to Eric and John and will be used to cover out of pocket costs related to evacuating their families from the flood area (food, clothing, shelter, toiletries...etc). The funds will be distributed either through GoFundMe directly to the individuals or through the purchase of Visa gift cards, the beneficiaries choice.
