Hurricane Harvey has displaced more than 1 million people, damaged about 200,000 homes, and taken an estimated 50 lives, according to Reuters. At Scorpion, we are deeply saddened to see the losses experienced by all hurricane victims in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas.
In an effort to aid these victims, our digital marketing company has donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund managed by the Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF).
According to GHCF, 100% of the relief fund’s donations are used for immediate and long-term relief efforts in Houston, Harris County, and surrounding communities impacted by the hurricane. It will assist with needs such as temporary housing, food and supplies, healthcare, transportation, child care, and facility needs of child care and social service agencies.
“Our thoughts are with all of the Hurricane Harvey victims, and we want to help in any way we can,” said Sami Kretz, Vice President of the Project Management Office at Scorpion. “We know this is a small drop in the bucket of what the Hurricane Harvey victims need, but we hope we can make even the smallest difference in the lives of those who are suffering.”
As a company with an office in Addison, Texas, the Scorpion team felt especially compelled to contribute to the relief effort.
“We’ve seen the devastation that Hurricane Harvey has caused, and our hearts go out to our fellow Texans,” said Jamie Adams, Scorpion’s Chief Revenue Officer who works at the Addison office. “We hope our donation helps these disaster victims get back on their feet and start rebuilding their lives.”
If you haven’t already, our team at Scorpion encourages you to make a donation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, or to any other fund that aids victims of the hurricane.
At Scorpion, we believe in supporting others wherever we can. Our charitable giving division, Scorpion Cares, regularly donates to nonprofit organizations and charitable funds that help people who are in need.
