“US MED is in the business of assisting people in need of care on a daily basis. This extends beyond the clinical community and into local communities. As a result, US MED has launched an internal fund raising initiative through our Employee Giving Program, to assist the victims of the Harvey hurricane,” said Chief Sales Officer Thomas Barron.

US MED will commit to providing awareness through all our social media platforms to encourage followers to donate to charitable companies such as United Way, Salvation Army or the American Red Cross to name a few. We want to reach people outside of our organization to help assist those living in Houston and surrounding affected areas.

100% of the proceeds raised on Thursday, August 31st will be provided to United Way to help during the disaster relief. We are committed to doing our part to provide assistance to the many people living in these areas.

Our organization’s is driven by a culture of dedication to family and we want to extend that to assist the families in Houston through this disaster relief. Many of our employees understand the impact a natural catastrophe can have on a community. Having lived through Hurricane Andrew and other disasters that affected South Florida, our goal as an organization is to unite everyone in a time of need and provide support back to those communities.

We are really moved by the amount of people that are currently donating and assisting victims. Stay Strong Houston!

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in South Texas recovering from this devastating storm. I want to thank our employees for all their contributions,” said US MED CEO Stephen Foreman.
