Hurricane Business Recovery … Not Preparation
So when I started this blog post, my idea was to list and describe all of the necessary things you need to do after a devastating storm. I didn’t want to create a laundry list of what you should have done before the storm. At this point, it’s too late and maybe in poor taste, as folks are trying to get their lives back. Right now, in Houston, we needed something that helped businesses recover.
I spent some time volunteering last week at Common Threads but felt that wasn’t enough. Since I am no good with a hammer and my services are rather abstract, I thought that one way I could help was to create a website that would gather various recovery resources that directly benefit businesses.
I created the Hurricane Business Recovery website to collect various government and private resources and donation sites. Things like donating office equipment, shredding destroyed computers, and office space are offered, but not many people know about them.
I hope to keep adding local Houston businesses doing what they can to help other companies get back to work. If you know of anyone or any company that is donating their time or their business services or is accepting donations on behalf of businesses, please complete this Google form; https://gxweb.site/hurricaneharvey-addabusinesslisting. We’d love to add more!
