Hurricane Harvey, a Category 4 hurricane, devastated the Coastal Bend on the weekend of Aug. 25th. It made landfall at its peak intensity in Rockport, TX, a city 45 minutes away from Corpus Christi, where Ironwood Finance is located. Several others of our surrounding cities suffered a great deal because of Harvey and, while the spirit of the people here are strong, these cities need all the help they can get to rebuild.
The community here has been full force in volunteering, donating, and assisting anyone who needs help recovering. For everyone who wants to help out but cannot be here or do so physically, we have compiled a list of places you can make an online donation at. These places will give 100% of the money they receive to the affected towns of the Coastal Bend such as Rockport, Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Refugio, Corpus Christi, and many others who need them.
Here are several links to places and organizations that are accepting donations. Click on them to know more about their efforts and how their donation processes work:
We will continue to update this list as we learn of more.
