With the holidays approaching, now is a great time to help our neighbors and friends in need.
As a reminder, Econometrica’s fundraising page to support the Central Texas Food Bank including those affected by Hurricane Harvey continues to accept donations. In fact, recent reports indicate there is still great need, including those who are lacking clean drinking water.
Econometrica, Inc., has long focused on projects that include disaster recovery, public health initiatives, public and affordable housing, and nutrition assistance/food security. We understand the basic, daily needs of people, especially following a disaster. In the past, Econometrica provided support services related to the implementation of the Katrina Disaster Housing Assistance Program and the follow-on Disaster Voucher Program—two programs that addressed the urgent housing needs of flood victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. And following extensive flooding and landslides in Colorado in September 2013, Econometrica was contracted to provide onsite subject matter expertise in a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Joint Field Office to inform State, regional, and local economic recovery planning.
Econometrica also has numerous clients (past and present) and business associates throughout Texas, including along the coast and in Houston. We have been deeply saddened to witness the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, so we have set up this fundraising page to support the Central Texas Food Bank, which will use these funds to purchase disaster relief boxes and quickly distribute them to the individuals and families who need them most. The boxes are filled with necessary goods that are easy for those impacted by the storm to use.
Currently, Econometrica has raised more than $2,500, but we think we can do better! The more funds that are raised, the greater the impact will be, so please spread the word by sharing this page with your friends, colleagues, and family.
In this season of giving, we encourage you to consider a tax-deductible donation. In fact, donations made right now will be matched dollar for dollar; that’s twice the impact! Let’s come together to help those in need.
Thank you for your generosity!
