Your company can help Texas and Florida recover from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
As residents of Texas, and now Florida, continue to struggle with the destruction wrought by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, IHA is partnering once again with Good360 to provide hurricane victims with home products as they rebuild their lives and homes. Twelve years ago, IHA partnered with Good360 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and the housewares industry responded with a generous heart to help New Orleans recover.
We’re pleased to partner with Good360 and leverage the generosity of the housewares industry to help make a difference for thousands of hurricane victims,” said Phil Brandl, IHA president & CEO. “Good360 is an organization with an impeccable track record of distributing needed products in a well-managed and structured way. Their corporate partners in disaster recovery include Walmart, Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware, CVS and UPS.”
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in Texas approximately 450,000 people need assistance, and more than 30,000 residents have been displaced from their homes. In Florida, the numbers are more staggering.
Here’s how your company can help:
Currently, Good360 is working closely with FEMA to help shelters with immediate needs such as personal items, toiletries and water. Efforts will move very soon into the recovery and rebuilding phases that will last for months and years. Your company and other IHA members can help Good360 pre-position product to help in the rebuilding phase.
