AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In partnership with the Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN), U.S. Money Reserve raised $219,622 in donations for Hurricane Harvey victims. The Texas-based precious metals distributor—with offices in Austin, Beaumont and Houston, Texas—acted quickly to set up a relief initiative for victims after the unprecedented hurricane tore through the Texas coastline. For the month of September, U.S. Money Reserve matched donations made to Austin Disaster Relief Network's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund through its YouCaring page.
"We felt deeply compelled to help our fellow Texans. The hurricane could have easily impacted any of us, and we know that," said Angela Koch, CEO of U.S. Money Reserve. "Harvey hit close to home and our hearts go out to all our employees, customers, family and strangers affected by the disaster. Rebuilding will take an enormous amount of resources, and it is our patriotic duty to help our neighbors. We are proud to support an amazing organization like ADRN to assist the recovery efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey."
All funds raised have gone directly to helping the victims of the storm in the Texas Gulf Coast Region. Read more about these efforts here.
"It is through businesses like U.S. Money Reserve that we have been able to meet the high financial demands of this disaster response," said Daniel Geraci, Executive Director of Austin Disaster Relief Network. "Many lives will be impacted through this generous donation!"
Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 hurricane that hit Texas on August 25, 2017. Harvey made landfall three separate times in six days and due to the nature of the slow-moving storm, two feet of rain fell in the first 24 hours. At Harvey's peak on September 1st, it was reported that one-third of Houston was underwater. Flooding forced 39,000 people out of their homes and into shelters.
