In response to unprecedented flooding following Hurricane Harvey, Regions Bank on Tuesday announced the company is giving $100,000 to support relief efforts, rebuilding and recovery. The funds will be divided between the United Way of Greater Houston’s Flood Relief Fund and a relief program to assist Regions associates directly affected by the flooding.
"The Greater Houston area faces a long road to recovery as historic flood waters recede and rebuilding begins," said Grayson Hall, Chairman, President and CEO of Regions Financial Corp. "We are committed to providing long-term support to meet the needs of our clients, communities and associates personally affected by Hurricane Harvey. By providing financial resources, guidance and services, we hope we can make the recovery easier."
The United Way of Greater Houston has established a Flood Relief Fund to help with the recovery needs of those most impacted by Hurricane Harvey. All funds raised by United Way’s Flood Relief Fund will be used to help with both immediate, basic needs and long-term recovery services such as case management and minor home repair.
Approximately 275 Regions associates call the greater Houston area home, and many have been personally affected by widespread flooding following Hurricane Harvey. The Regions Associate Relief Program, which is administered by a third party, provides financial assistance to associates who have been affected by disasters.
