PLANO, TEXAS As Hurricane Harvey continues to bring catastrophic flooding and devastation to parts of Southeast Texas, Service Metrics Group is donating a portion of its gross revenue in August and September to aid in the disaster relief effort.
The company announced an initiative to help the tens of thousands of people in the affected areas meet their basic needs. In addition to its financial contribution, the company will be assisting efforts on the ground.
"As a company founded in and with a proud presence in Texas, including the hardest-hit areas, we're committed to helping our neighbors get through this crisis," said Managing Partner Will Tarrant. "We know that the needs are immense, but so is our commitment for making a meaningful impact on the emergency response and humanitarian efforts. Our thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Texans."
All donations will go directly to efforts on the ground in Southeast Texas, including the local Salvation Army, the American Red Cross and other respected organizations that provide disaster outreach in the region. Service Metrics Group is also encouraging its team members, clients, and others to make contributions to these worthwhile causes.
Along with the financial assistance, the company's Dallas/Fort Worth-based team will be visiting the effected areas in the coming weeks to assist with relief efforts - including construction and food storage at the Salvation Army's rescue shelter in Houston. They are also working with multiple food banks throughout Texas to provide food and other necessities to multiple emergency shelters in and around Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth.
