NKBA Establishes Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

harvey_720As most of our readers know, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) does quite a bit to help countertop fabricators and associated builders and remodelers, but it also provides a platform to help communities in need. The latest effort of the NKBA is the establishment of a fund dedicated to helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund will mitigate some of the damage nature has wrought in Southeast Texas and along the Gulf Coast. This storm was one of the largest to strike the area, causing up to $190 billion in damage, killing 60 people over 11 counties and displacing tens of thousands of people from their homes.

Homes were not all that was damaged, however. Businesses of all sorts, including those of several NKBA members were devastated, and to do its part in helping to rebuild, the NKBA will match up to $500,000 in donations with a total goal of raising $1 million.

According to the association, “Contributions will go directly to helping our members get their businesses, livelihoods and lives back on track. Any funds not utilized by our members will be distributed to general relief agencies to assist the broader community.”
