Hurricane Harvey touched down in Texas on August 25th, 2017. It has left thousands of Texans displaced in its wake. Unfortunately, the unprecedented flooding that has occurred around the state has hit close to home for LAZ Texas. The city of Houston is home to 6.5 million people whose way of life has been devastated by the flooding caused by Harvey.
In light of this, we have been reaching out to team members in Houston. Thus far, there are at least 16 team members who need immediate assistance due to the damage the flooding has caused to their personal property. However, as the rain begins to subside and the water begins to recede, we anticipate more team members will need assistance.
LAZ Texas wants to provide an opportunity for our community to support the LAZ Houston family as quickly as we can, as they begin to rebuild their lives and the city they call home. To show our support, we are collecting funds to assist those in need. All proceeds will go directly to our LAZ Houston team to financially assist those affected by the storm. The basis of our culture is our People First commitment, so LAZ will be matching donations up to $25,000 through the LAZ Charitable Foundation.
As the flooding has affected the entire city of Houston, any remaining proceeds will be donated to a verified charity focused on assisting Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The Houston team embodies the Never Ever Give Up attitude that is more evident and present today than ever. #LAZHoustonStrong
