InterServer gives back!

Hurricane Harvey has devastated parts of the United States with its record-shattering destructiveness. Parts of Louisiana and Texas struggle with extreme flooding conditions that make it impossible to inhabit the area. InterServer has connected with American Red Cross to support the relief of the tragic event.  For every Web-Hosting order InterServer will donate 100% of the first month to the American Red Cross.

Why?

A key component of InterServers belief system is to give back to the community. If there is a chance to strengthen or aid a community especially in a case of disaster, InterServer will be there!

How donations help?

The American Red Cross actively seeks donations of food and money to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. Through donations, the Red Cross sends pallets of water and fresh meals to supply those in need. Already, about 30,000 people have been aided as a result. InterServer is proud to join in on assisting the Red Cross in such tough times.

American Red Cross stated the following,

More than 1,800 people took refuge from the deadly storm Saturday night in 34 Red Cross and community shelters in Texas. In Louisiana, one shelter is open where 8 people spent Saturday night. These numbers are expected to grow and dozens of additional shelters could open. Harvey will continue to produce large amounts of rain over the next several days. Millions of people are facing flash flood warnings, including the entire Houston metro area which is under a flash flood emergency. There are reports of people stranded in their homes and water rescues are ongoing. Roads are flooded, rail lines are shut down, airports closed and hundreds of thousands have no power. Numerous hospitals, nursing facilities and dialysis centers are closed.

Hundreds of Red Cross volunteers from all over the country are on the ground now, working to provide safe shelter and comfort to people impacted by this devastating storm. The Red Cross has enough shelter supplies in Texas to support 28,000 people and supplies for an additional 22,000 people are being sent in now.

In addition, tractor trailer loads of ready-to-eat meals, comfort kits, kitchen supplies and cleaning supplies are on the ground in Texas. Nearly half of our emergency response fleet — more than 150 vehicles – have been mobilized. The Red Cross also prepositioned blood products in Houston ahead of the storm to help ensure we can maintain an adequate blood supply over the weekend. We have staged additional blood inventory in Dallas.”
