Helping After Hurricanes supporting those providing aid to people affected by Harvey and Irma.
Recent headlines have been swarmed with news of the hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Across the nation, individuals and businesses alike have risen to the occassion to lend their support in helping people affected by both hurricanes. The staff at Venue in downtown Fairbanks would like to do their part.
Until the end of September, Venue will be accepting donations to send to the Red Cross and Save the Children, organizations whose purpose is to help people in need. Our Goal is to raise $10,000 each in support of both Hurricane Irm and Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The Red Cross is currently responding to the immediate effects of hurricane Irma and thus we will be sending Irma donations to them. To help people affected by Hurricane Harvey, we are going to send donations to Save the Children, an honorable organization that spends its time and efforts on helping individuals and families get back on their feet after such disasters. We are very proud to be helping those in need and we hope that you will join us in our fundraising efforts.
