Support for Hurricane Harvey
- August 29, 2017
Over the last several days, Hurricane Harvey and subsequent Tropical Storm Harvey have caused unprecedented flooding and devastation for many parts of Central and Southeast Texas. It’s truly unparalleled, and our hearts go out to all affected.
As a company headquartered in Central Texas, the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey is personal, and we are committed to supporting customers, colleagues, friends and family who have been affected.
Dell have committed $500,000 to support the American Red Cross’s relief efforts. The American Red Cross offers resources, shelter, mass feeding, counseling, and eventually financial assistance to those impacted. Also, we have set up a dedicated relief page on Dell’s internal Legacy of Good Community where our team members can give. Dell matches every dollar donated up to $10,000 USD per team member, per year. One hundred percent of the donations and 100 percent of the match will go to those who need it most.
Additionally, Dell’s Global Command Center (GCC) and Support and Deployment Services continue to proactively monitor the impact of tropical Storm Harvey on our business and customers. GCC established a 24/7 war room, and we are preparation for an increase in call volume from affected customers.
The storm is expected to continue over upcoming days. If a friend or loved one is in harm’s way, urge them to listen to advice of emergency officials. You can find shelters by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or downloading their free Red Cross Emergency App via app stores or redcross.org/apps.
Our Texas colleagues, customers, friends and families are in our thoughts during this difficult time.
