Chant/AWRF Hurricane Harvey Fund

Posted on August 29, 2017

We have been inspired by the countless images of the Texas spirit of neighbor helping neighbor.  And "neighbor" is defined in the very largest sense of the word.  In that same spirit, Chant Engineering and the Associated Wire Rope Fabricators (AWRF) have teamed up with a "Go Fund Me" to specifically look out for those in our industry who have been impacted by Harvey.  The following is from the Go Fund Me Page they have set up at this link:

As you are aware, the coastline of Texas is underwater after being struck by the catastrophic Category 4 Hurricane Harvey. Rescue organizations are saying not to send, food and water right now, but that raising $dollars$ is the best way to help and what the people of Texas and Louisiana need most at this time. 

Chant Engineering Co. Inc. located in New Britain, PA has partnered with the Associated Wire Rope Fabricators (AWRF) association to help their membership across the coast of Texas and beyond who have been affected by flooding, including some of their homes and businesses are under many feet of water. 

While the National Guard, U.S. Coast Guard, Red Cross, FEMA, Fire & Police Emergency Responders and other rescue organizations are helping with emergency rescue efforts right now, Chant also wanted to work alongside those organizations to help out affected families to make up for lost wages and to help them with their basic needs, such as shelter, food, water, supplies, or whatever else they might need. 

Harvey is one of the largest hurricanes to hit the entire Texas coastal region in decades. Some of the Texas cities harshly affected by the storm and flood waters in this region are Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, Houston and even into the State of Lousiana.  Of course, there are other places that have been hit by tornados and who will be recovering from the damage and loss of life for a long time to come.

We are grateful for any help you or your organization can provide. It is at a time like this when we need to come together to help others.
