As you may have seen in the news, many of the first responders who have worked tirelessly to rescue and help so many Houston area residents during and after Hurricane Harvey have done so while their families suffered as their own homes and property were damaged or destroyed. Unfortunately, first responders from The Memorial Villages Public Safety Departments were not spared this plight, and we are already aware of several members of our public safety departments whose homes or vehicles were severely flooded while they were on days-long duty.
In recognition of the sacrifices that our first responders have made on our behalf and that they continue to make every day, several of our residents have assisted us in establishing “The Memorial Villages First Responder Relief Fund.” The mission of the fund is to provide relief to the Memorial Villages’ first responders who are themselves the victims of disasters or suffer other emergency hardships. Initially, the fund will accept donations from Memorial Villages’ residents, businesses, and others to provide financial assistance through cash grants to the Memorial Villages’ first responders who have or are suffering financial hardships as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The fund will remain in place after we recover from Hurricane Harvey to provide financial assistance to our first responders who face emergency hardships as a result of future natural disasters or emergencies.
Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, but the really hot period for storms fires up with high temperatures in the middle of August.
