Texas is home to U.S. Money Reserve, so the company leaped into action following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The severe storm made landfall in mid-August and caused as much as $180 billion in damages to Houston and the Gulf of Mexico region in general. With rainfall of as much as 65 inches in some areas over a four-day period, catastrophic flooding resulted and thousands of Texans lost their homes and all of their possessions. Most tragically, at least 82 people dies as a result of the hurricane. Learn more: http://www.manta.com/c/mml8pv9/u-s-money-reserve-in
Austin, Texas-based U.S. Money Reserve responded with a matching donation plan to contribute up to $100,000 during the entire month of September. The contribution was earmarked for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by the non-profit organization Austin Disaster Relief Network, or ADRN. The U.S. Money Reserve contribution, which matched other contributors on a dollar-for-dollar basis, helped to fund a range of critical services, including emergency housing, transportation, home repair and immediate cash assistance. The company knew that the financial support had to be not only generous but quickly forthcoming in order to meet extensive and urgent need. Storm victims were in desperate want of clean water, hygiene products and medicine before their long-term needs could even start to be addressed.
U.S. Money Reserve felt the importance of being a part of this recovery effort out of loyalty to its roots. The company began operation in Austin and has offices in additional cities in the state. Furthermore, some U.S. Money Reserve staff and family members and many of the company’s customers were adversely affected by the hurricane. The partnership with ADRN was quickly established so that relief efforts could begin as soon after the storm as possible.
