Houston MeNERDs STEP UP For Community

Or How We Helped Post-Hurricanes

Although we're used to providing support to build things up, some of the MeNERDs recently found themselves unfortunately cleaning up after Hurricanes Irma and Maria had torn things down. 

Our Houston office did not sustain any damage, thankfully, but our team in Texas sprung into action to help their community overcome the devastating effects of the horrible storm. Business Development Manager Maysill, Area Manager Jonathan, Sales Engineer Brian and Sales Engineer John all helped clean up houses and neighborhoods around the Houston area.

Proving MeNERDs go above and beyond in ALL situations, Maysill volunteered at a local shelter, donated household goods like blankets and towels and made donations to the United Way and Red Cross. Jonathan shuttled fuel and water and provided transportation for people who were unable to communicate with loved ones. Brian worked at the food bank and donated blood. John also donated to local families through a family assistance plan at his wife's school.

In addition, Menard Group USA made an initial donation of $5k to the United Way and has committed up to $10k for other efforts that are near and dear to the hearts of our Houston team.

You can still help! Visit the charities below to see how you can contribute.

Organizations Involved

United Way

United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.

We all have a stake in what befalls our fellow man. We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when someone finds a job that will help them provide for their family, or when more people are able to access quality, affordable health care.  

We rise or fall together. With your support, we are reaching for great new heights.

 

The American Red Cross

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.​

The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. We aspire to turn compassion into action so that...

...all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope;

...our communities are ready and prepared for disasters;

...everyone in our country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products;

...all members of our armed services and their families find support and comfort whenever needed; and

...in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.
