Sallyport Commercial Finance Supports Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Sugar Land, TX – Sallyport Commercial Finance and its employees support the local community in Houston severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Sallyport was delighted and humbled to be able to deliver gift cards raised by its generous employees to a local elementary school that was severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Hilliard Elementary School in Houston, was placed in the “top 10” of schools damaged by the storm, when floodwaters reached 4 feet high inside the school and caused extensive damage. For more information, visit: http://blogs.houstonisd.org/news/2017/09/02/hilliard-elementary-among-schools-that-suffered-extensive-damage-in-hurricane-harvey/

Every teacher and every student at the school have been impacted at a personal level, with many still not situated in permanent housing, families having lost everything, including all of their clothes, shoes and toys, and one family still living in their car. The school chose some of the worst affected teachers and students to personally receive our gift cards, and the teachers were overwhelmed at the generosity shown towards them and their situation.

Sallyport representatives came away humbled and determined to continue to help the effort and those less fortunate in our community. You can donate to the relief effort, by texting HARVEY to 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross (or by visiting RedCross.org to give any other amount). There are many other charities that willingly accept donations.

Special thanks goes to our industry friend and colleague, Ryan Jaskiewicz and his team at 12five Capital, who, from their base in Chicago, started the gift card initiative, by raising funds from within our industry. He generously sent Sallyport a donation that kickstarted our own gift card drive, in order to help those affected in our community. It is truly a pleasure to see our industry come together to offer help to those in affected areas.
