Given the recent life altering destruction of hurricane Harvey and Irma, fellow APAGR member Amanda Moore has spearheaded a fundraising effort for City workers to contribute.
As public servants and leaders in our organization, we have a firm understanding of the efforts needed to regroup and rebuild in the wake of a natural disaster. In the case of disasters of this magnitude, there is an almost unending list of needs:
Rebuilding homes, mold mitigation, road reconstruction, restoration of critical communication infrastructure, removal of storm debris, clean-up of environmental contaminants.
The above list represents just a small sample of what must be done to recover from these deadly natural disasters. While the destruction of these hurricanes may be far from home, many APAGR members have friends and family who have been severely impacted.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these victims by donating to the American Red Cross, a charity with a long history of ensuring that aid reaches those who need it most. Amanda has set a goal that the total donated by individual employees reaches $5000.00.
While this is not an official solicitation by the APAGR for your participation, we strongly encourage you to join Amanda in making a difference in the lives of those who have lived through these horrendous disasters.
You can Donate Online to the Red Cross with a credit card or in person next week at the General Membership Meeting or our Annual Golf Outing.
Full details of this initiative can be found in the attachment associated with this message.
