As part of our efforts to support the communities in which we work and live, Satterfield & Pontikes sponsored a Donation Drive to benefit the American Red Cross Texas Floods and Tornadoes Fund. Through this Fund, the Red Cross is providing shelter, food, health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet.

Some of our own employees have been negatively impacted by the recent flooding in Houston. One made the following comment: “The Red Cross has been great providing meals and they’ve even delivered a few while I’ve been at home working. They’ve provided shovels, rakes, and even some storage tubs.  Almost everyone in my neighborhood has spoken very highly of their assistance.”

Together, 66 S&P employees were able to raise $2,870 to help those impacted by the recent Texas Floods & Tornadoes, and the company matched their efforts taking our total donation to $5,740!
