Just over a week ago, with heavy hearts for Houston and our Texas neighbors, we announced our HPW Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive.
With the generosity of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team and the kind Triangle community, we were able to collect $3,600 and match it dollar-for-dollar through our HPW Foundation for an overall donation of $7,200 to benefit the:
- Houston Food Bank;
- The Salvation Army of Greater Houston;
- United Way of Greater Houston; and the
- Food Bank of Corpus Christie.
"Our HPW real estate team showed up to the plate for Texas and all those affected by Harvey," said Matt Horton, HPW Foundation President and Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Director of Marketing. "Their generous donations allowed us to raise more than $7,000 to help numerous nonprofit organizations continue their relief efforts."
Today, we watch with great trepidation as Hurricane Irma approaches Florida with a projected path leading up through Georgia, Alabama and into Tennessee. We know this powerful storm will cause major destruction and devastation as it moves along leaving even more of our nation's neighbors in need.
Our HPW Foundation plans to meet those needs head on and will be announcing additional relief efforts after Irma departs. "We do our best to Help People Win in all ways, in all circumstances," added Horton. "Once Irma's winds settle, we will announce a plan to provide support to the communities and people who need it the most."
