Mercury One Charity Leads Fundraising Effort to Provide Immediate and Long-Term Relief for Hurricane Harvey Victims
Through its non-profit organization, Mercury One is actively raising funds to support those impacted by the recent and continued devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey along the Texas coast, Houston area, east Texas and Louisiana. The organization is ensuring 100 percent of the funding will be provided to six core disaster relief partners.
Mercury One’s partners have pledged 100 percent of granted funds will directly aid and assist individuals through search and rescue, basic needs, humanitarian support, food and long-term clean-up and recovery efforts. These partners are CitiImpact, Gleaning for the World, Operation BBQ Relief, Somebody Cares, Team Rubicon and The Provisions Project.
“Hurricane Harvey is already being deemed one of the most massive and catastrophic events in U.S. history. In keeping with Mercury One’s mission to restore the human spirit, we are taking swift action to address the most immediate needs, while we enable and prepare for the long-term support so desperately needed by millions of people across the region,” said Mercury One Executive Director, Suzanne Grishman. “Our organization and loyal supporters have a rich history of mobilizing resources to have a meaningful impact in dire situations.”
“Such a large number of people in our state are underwater, losing their homes and are worried about so much. I want to thank the donors for caring and trusting Mercury One to get funds to those who need it. No matter where you are in the world, we thank you for your prayers and donations,” said Mercury One’s Founder, Glenn Beck.
Prior to Hurricane Harvey making landfall, Mercury One had been in contact with its disaster relief partners. Throughout the event, each partner has been in constant communications with Homeland Security, the Office of Emergency Management, and the Texas chapter of the Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster. These organizations are now actively deployed across the region with water, blankets, food, supplies and volunteers.
