SERVPRO Craven/Pamlico helps in Texas!
On September 5th, five of our crew members traveled from Greenville, NC to Corpus Christi, Texas to help with the damages after Hurricane Harvey. Hurricane Harvey was a category four storm that became the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the US on August 24 in Rockport, Texas. The damage done in Rockport and the surrounding areas was catastrophic and had a huge impact on the locals. Record rainfall flooded largely populated areas and forced more than 30,000 people from their homes. Since Hurricane Harvey impacted massive amounts of people SERVPRO Craven/Pamlico counties will be in Corpus Christi, Texas for a couple more weeks helping to repair damaged homes and businesses. SERVPRO restoration services include: Water Damage Restoration, Fire Damage Restoration, Mold Remediation and Storm Damage Cleanup. SERVPRO Pitt/Greene Counties took the initiative to travel to Texas to help but there are several ways that you can help contribute as well!
Donate money. The best way to help Texans affected by disasters is to donate money to charitable agencies that are experienced in disaster relief. Before giving money to an organization, do your research!
Donate blood. Blood banks have been urging people to donate since demand for blood is rising. Find your local Red Cross and donate!
Open your home. You can offer to provide free accommodations to hurricane evacuees through Airbnb. The service is waiving all fees until Sept. 25.
Adopt a pet. If you’re thinking about adopting a dog or a cat, this could be a great time. Animal welfare organizations in Texas, Florida and around the country are likely to take in pets that have lost their owners. Check with your local animal shelter and adopt!
