Even though Hurricane Harvey is no longer featured on the evening news, the region affected by this horrible natural disaster is still in great need of help in terms of cleaning up and rebuilding the communities. In order to do their part, U.S. Money Reserve partnered with Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) this past September to help raise funds that would go toward the work that ADRN has been doing in Texas. The fundraising initiative lasted through the month of September, culminating with U.S. Money Reserve doubling all donations made through its YouCaring page. In total, U.S. Money Reserve raised $219,622 in donations for Hurricane Harvey victims.
Entering this partnership was an easy decision for U.S. Money Reserve. The company, originally founded in Austin, Texas, was greatly affected by the devastating storm that swept through the Texas Gulf Coast Region. In addition to the staff working at the headquarters, staff at offices in Houston, Beaumont and Lumberton were affected by the storm as well.
Recovering from Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey is considered to be one of the most damaging natural disasters in U.S history. The hurricane claimed the lives of 82 people, and thousands were forced to flee their homes, leaving everything they own behind. Many are still not able to return to their homes because of the damage caused by the storm. Over 700,000 people were forced to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in order to get necessary supplies. The storm caused over $180 billion in damage, and the cleanup after the storm is still ongoing. Storm debris can still be found in many areas around the state.
The problems caused by Hurricane Harvey are not limited to damage in property. Almost 800 wastewater treatment facilities were flooded during the days the storm raged in the state, spreading sewage and toxic chemicals into urban areas. Because of that, disease also spread, affecting the health of thousands of people.
ADRN has been one of the many nonprofit organizations that responded and came to help out in the difficult times after the Hurricane Harvey. Its main mission is to assist affected families through their Disaster Relief Shepherd program. Services include everything from financial aid to temporary shelter, emotional counseling and cleanup deployment to the affected areas. Its work is fully dependent on volunteer work and donations.
