Dear fellow King County employee,

This weekend, Hurricane Harvey tore across Texas and Louisiana, leaving a trail of destruction and loss of life in its wake. The impact on people, the environment, and cities and towns – big and small – has been devastating, and with more storms forecast for the area, the damage is expected to get worse.

These are challenging times for the people and communities affected by this hurricane. Rebuilding towns and lives will take months and years, and many employees have asked how they can help.

Our Employee Giving Program has updated its Disaster Giving webpage with information on how to donate to nonprofit organizations that are responding to the Hurricane Harvey. This page will be updated as nonprofits confirm their work in the area.

A catastrophe such as this is a reminder that we all need to be ready to care for ourselves and loved ones in the event of disaster. I encourage you to visit www.makeitthrough.org to see what you can do to prepare yourself and your family for a disaster.

Sincerely,
