Here at Roux, in just a few short weeks we have raised over $44,000 in donations for hurricane relief thanks to each of our offices nationwide. This includes our offices in Northern and Southern California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Northern and Southern New Jersey, Texas, and our New York Headquarters.
One of the charitable organizations we selected was the Houston Food Bank, which has been raising money to help families affected by Hurricane Harvey. With our support, Houston Food Bank distributed 15,942,027 pounds of food, water, and supplies since the floodwaters receded.
Our total also went toward the Humane Society and the American Red Cross, both of which are making efforts in all affected areas of the U.S. In addition to their Hurricane Harvey efforts, more than 12,780 people were provided refuge in 188 government and Red Cross shelters across Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands for both Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
“I am extremely proud and humbled by everyone’s generosity at Roux Associates from each of our offices in our collective effort to provide relief to those impacted by these devastating storms,” stated Mary Macy, our Chief Financial Officer. “Through these donations, we are helping to rebuild lives.”
