WIND Donates $20,000 for Texas and Florida Hurricane Relief

This year’s hurricane season, was in a word, devastating.

In just a month’s time, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria inflicted damage, destruction, and death in a one-two-three punch.

Lives were forever altered and home and businesses destroyed or leveled. With property damage in the billions and recovery estimated into the coming months or years, it’s times like this when there’s so much to do and so many to help.

As professionals in the property insurance claims industry, it is our association’s goal to support communities affected by recent disasters. WIND is proud to contribute to those in need due to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and we thank our members and our conference attendees for the support that enables WIND to make such charitable contributions.

We all know that there are many, many worthy charities and organizations to choose from in both Texas and Florida. To that end, WIND has contributed $20,000 to various charities to help people and our four-legged friends.

Here is a list of those charities:

Hurricane Harvey

Habitat for Humanity – Houston Chapter

To help rebuild homes lost in Hurricane Harvey.

Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas

To help the SWU fund established for students unable to afford college due to the financial hardship caused by Hurricane Harvey.

The Boy Scouts Houston Chapter
