SRS Raise the Roof Foundation Expands Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to include Hurricane Irma Victims

Words simply do not exist to express how truly grateful we are to each and every one of you, our supporters.  It has been almost two weeks since we began raising money to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey through the SRS Raise the Roof Foundation’s - Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.  The response thus far has been unfathomable and left us truly humbled.  At this time we would like to take the opportunity to provide you with a brief update on our progress thus far, and also to share some great news with you. 

To date: 379 individuals and organizations have contributed $190,942.00 to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey!  With the SRS match we currently have $381,884.00 in our relief fund.

We would also like to announce that we are expanding the scope of the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to include those who have been directly affected by Hurricane Irma in the past few days. 

As with Hurricane Harvey, the extent of the damage and destruction by Irma has yet to be seen, but it is most certainly severe.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Florida who has been impacted by this storm.  You are in our prayers, and we stand ready to assist you as we continue our mission of supporting natural disaster relief efforts in the communities we serve. 

In expanding the scope of this fund, we will also be extending the SRS Distribution matching component to include all contributions that we receive through Wednesday, September 20th.  By adding this third week of matched fundraising we believe we can reach our new goal of $250,000.00, for a total of $500,000.00 in funds raised for the victims of these two storms.

To make a contribution directly to this fund that will be matched dollar for dollar by SRS Distribution, please follow the link below.

SRS Raise the Roof Foundation set to help Hurricane Harvey Victims

As rain continues to fall along the gulf coast of Texas and Louisiana, the real threat that Hurricane Harvey presented is now being realized.  With rainfall accumulations of up to 24” in the first 24 hours; and as much as a total of 50” possible in some areas over the next several days, we are seeing flood levels that cannot be benchmarked and may only continue to rise. 

With this in mind, we are sending our immediate thoughts and prayers to everyone in the affected areas as this event continues to unfold.

Additionally, we would like to thank everyone who has reached out to both SRS Distribution and the SRS Raise the Roof Foundation expressing their desire to help the victims of this storm.

The SRS Raise the Roof Foundation is committed to supporting natural disaster relief efforts of the communities we serve.  The damage has been catastrophic, and these communities along with our employees, customers and suppliers will need our support.

For this reason, I am announcing a two week fundraising campaign dedicated to the direct relief and support for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  As a part of this campaign, SRS Distribution will match 100% of the contributions that are received by the Foundation during this period.  All money raised will go to support relief organizations that the Foundation currently sponsors or, on a limited basis, directly to victims of this terrible storm, including SRS employees.

To make a contribution directly to this fund that will be matched dollar for dollar by SRS Distribution, please follow the link below.

Thank you for your time, and please keep the rest of our friends and family in your prayers!
