With rainfall from Hurricane Harvey topping 50 inches, much of Houston and the stretch eastward into Louisiana, whole cities and towns are/were under water. At last count 39 lives have been lost, and survivors face hurdles that reach far into the future. At the heart of the disaster are heart-warming accounts of neighbors helping neighbors and volunteers taking their personal boats out among the stranded to offer transport or supplies.
Many charitable funds are in place to receive donations where the maximum benefit may be utilized. Houstonâ€™s Mayor Sylvester Turner has established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. The Houston Food Bank, Houston Humane Society, and other authentic organizations are collecting resources for what is termed the most hurricane devastation in history.
Zephyr Real Estate is matching donations from its agents and employees who contribute to these and other validated relief efforts of their choosing. Agents and staff are encouraged to donate and bring their receipts to the main office so that the matching funds may be sent.
â€œIâ€™m so happy to see my company doing matching funds for the hurricane relief effort,â€? commented Melody Foster, Vice President of Marketing. â€œHaving my donation to Team Rubicon USA get an extra donation boost helps it have even greater impact. Thanks Zephyr!â€?
â€œIâ€™m so proud to work for a company that is matching our donations to provide extra support for those who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey,â€? added Noriko Williams, Vice President-Administration Relocation Services.
Everyone is encouraged to give generously in this time of crisis. â€œOur hearts are with Houston and all the communities impacted by the devastation of the hurricane,â€? commented Randall Kostick, Zephyrâ€™s President.
