AZZ Employees Share their Stories

When you donate to a cause, you wonder ‘where’s my money going?’. And in this case, I saw the other end. People donated and we saw the result of those donations.

Taking Action When Help is Needed

Hurricane Harvey hit Texas on August 25th, 2017 as a category 4 hurricane. The storm dumped a years-worth of rain in less than a week on Houston and much of southeastern Texas. In total, more than 27 trillion gallons of rain is estimated to have fallen over Texas, causing two
flood-control reservoirs to breach,  making Harvey the wettest Atlantic hurricane ever measured. The subsequent flooding in the Houston area was estimated to have caused $125 billion in damage, making Harvey the second-most costly hurricane to hit the  U.S.  since 1900.

An Outpouring of Support After Hurricane Harvey

AZZ employees, customers, suppliers and distributors from around the world generously made financial contributions to assist those in need. All funds went to support their colleagues impacted by this tragedy. Financial contributions exceeded $200,000.

Assistance for 4 different AZZ facilities

We provided financial assistance, food, shelter and more to employees of AZZ Lighting Systems, AZZ Galvanizing – Houston, AZZ Galvanizing – Houston West, and AZZ Galvanizing – Beaumont so they could recover from Hurricane Harvey. Each AZZ facility, and many of the employees, sustained flood damage.

Help for employees who needed it most

In total, more than 250 AZZ employees, and their families were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Some lost everything, while others experienced minor flood damage. Regardless of need, donations provided by those who generously support the Foundation went directly to helping employees recover.
