Glassdoor Rallies for Hurricane Harvey Relief

first_imgSince Hurricane Harvey first hit the U.S. on August 25, Glassdoor employees have watched with heavy hearts as the storm ravaged communities in Texas and Louisiana — areas that several employees and customers have close ties to. Witnessing the devastation that Harvey has wrought, Glassdoor offices across the country have decided to band together and contribute toward relief efforts.  As a first step, Glassdoor will be donating $5,000 to the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce. A small town of about 10,000 people along the Gulf Coast, Rockport was the first area to be hit by the storm and has seen the most destruction, with electricity, roads, cell phone service, and other critical parts of their infrastructure effectively wiped out. The Chamber of Commerce plays a key role in supporting local businesses, and it is our hope that our donation can contribute toward sustainable economic growth in the wake of the hurricane. In addition, each of Glassdoor’s U.S.-based offices — Mill Valley, CA; San Francisco, Chicago and Green, OH — will be launching local drives to lend support to more specific organizations and areas, with Glassdoor matching donations up to $1,000 per office. Organizations to receive funds include the Houston Diaper Bank, JJ Watts Harvey Relief, Houston Humane Society and Corpus Christi Food Bank. Glassdoor is also working directly with its customers in the affected region to extend their Glassdoor accounts as needed.*“Our hearts go out to the people and communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Dawn Lyon, Glassdoor’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “It will take some time to recover and rebuild and we’re pleased we can help people in the affected communities get their lives back on track.” Restoring the areas devastated by Harvey is certainly no easy feat, but the more people and organizations that pitch in, the quicker we can help those impacted by the storm regain a sense of normalcy — to that end, we invite you to join us by donating to the Rockport-Fulton Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund and the organizations listed above. In the coming days, we will also be keeping a close eye on Hurricane Irma and wish everyone in its path well.*If you are a Glassdoor client in an area affected by Hurricane Harvey, please reach out to your rep and they will be happy to assist you.last_img read more
