Donating to Victims of Hurricane Harvey
There’s lots of people in the United States and the Caribbean that are suffering greatly this year due to extreme weather circumstances. We’re very sadden to see so many tragedies happening in the US at this moment and we know from personal experience what people have to go through to buy a home, for some people owning a home is the true “American Dream”. Some of these people have lost everything, all of their belongings and most importantly the home that they worked so hard for. After doing some research we have decided to make a donation in support of those victims who’ve lost their homes, the organization that we donated to specializes in helping people rebuild.
From their site:
“SBP was founded in March 2006 by Zack Rosenburg and Liz McCartney after the couple (now married), who originally lived in Washington, D.C., volunteered in Louisiana’s St. Bernard Parish following Hurricane Katrina. The parish, located just outside of New Orleans, was rendered 100% uninhabitable by Katrina’s floodwaters. Seeing the inefficiency and unbearably slow progress of the institutional – or “traditional” rebuilding process, but inspired by the residents’ collective spirit and fierce determination to rebuild, Zack and Liz launched SBP to help them achieve their recovery goals.
With the tremendous support of donors, volunteers and corporate partners, SBP has grown from a three-person volunteer team into a national organization headquartered in New Orleans, and recognized as a leader in disaster resilience and recovery, with a mission is to shrink time between disaster and recovery.”
Even if you’re not able to donate, we encourage you to raise awareness to this wonderful organization. Safe Harbor Title Company is located in Virginia and even though we haven’t been hit directly with one of these recent events, we know the importance of being united and helping our friends down south who have been affected by these recent tragedies.
