Hurricane Relief – Alicia and Kayla Volunteer
Houston, TX - October 4, 2017

Following Hurricane Harvey, Amerisource employees have been volunteering both their time and energy to help those in need. In support, we are providing them with paid time off during the working day to ensure that their skills are available to those who need them the most!

Last Friday, Alicia Adelman and Kayla Harris volunteered to help a family living in Bear Creek Village. This is what Alicia had to say about her experience:

“Bear Creek Village was one of the hardest hit places by the flooding, some of those homes were under water for a couple of weeks or longer. The family had spent tireless hours gutting the house, tearing down sheet-rock, ripping out flooring, etc., but they needed extra help with cleaning the outside of their property too. By now, all the flood-damaged household items had been removed from the front lawn, but there was still plenty of cleaning up to do. Kayla and I met the homeowner, and we came up with a plan. He said, “It might seem silly to be raking the dead lawn, but the remnants of trash are a daily reminder that all of our belongings were once piled high out there. I’d like to rake up the rest of the trash, so when I pull up to work on the house, it brings a sense of normalcy. My neighbors are all looking up to me because I am trying to help show them that we can do this!” It was so hot and humid that day, but Kayla and I spent many hours raking and picking up piles of trash. To look at the before and after pictures is incredibly rewarding! What a difference it made! As you can see from the photo, there is still a lot of work to be done in that community, but this small act of kindness has brought great joy!”

Hurricane Relief – Family helping Family
Houston, TX - October 3, 2017

Following Hurricane Harvey, Amerisource employees have been volunteering both their time and energy to help those in need.

Recently, Amy Doria, Lexie Strack, and Daniel Martinez volunteered to help a member of our Amerisource family! One of our Assistant Relationship Managers, Raven Burleson, whose apartment complex was damaged during Harvey, so she needed help to relocate her belongings.

“Amy, Lexie, and Daniel were such a great help! I would have not been able to accomplish what we did without them. My apartment complex was releasing all residents from our lease, giving us a 4-day notice to move out. Because this was in the middle of a work week, it left a lot of people in a bind to find any help needed to move out. I am very grateful for Amerisource and my coworkers being able to help me with this.” said Raven.

Houston, TX - October 3, 2017

Following Hurricane Harvey, Amerisource employees have been volunteering both their time and energy to help those in need. In support, we are providing them with paid time off during the working day to ensure that their skills are available to those who need them the most!

In the last few weeks Melanie Guzman, Esme Casas, Erica Bogan, Jason Floyd, and Kendra Wilson have been providing support to a client after their home was flooded during Harvey.

“The house was already gutted and removed of all sheetrock, so we came to clean and sanitize the framework and wiring. There was mud and residue from the flood water all on the wiring, so we wiped all that down with Clorox and wet rags. The wood paneling in the framework needed to be scrubbed and stripped down. We had to wipe all that down with Clorox and mold killer/ prevention spray.” said Melanie.

The Amerisource team also power washed the houses external brickwork and helped clean the employee’s garage out.

Hurricane Harvey Relief – Beau and JZ Volunteer in Chapelwood
Houston, TX - September 13, 2017

Beau and JZ recently helped clear up a home in Chapelwood. Here’s what Beau had to say about the experience: “We were afforded the opportunity to go with a local church and help clean out a home that had nearly 4 feet of water in it. Nearly 2 weeks after the initial flood, the water had just receded which resulted in terrible destruction of the home. We were able to clear everything out of the home, pull up carpet and flooring and take out sheetrock. The homeowner was a very nice young man whose wife is expecting a baby girl at the end of this year. He was extremely grateful for the help we provided and could not thank us enough for doing our part in the first step of making his house home again”

Well done JZ and Beau, and thank you!!


Hurricane Harvey Relief – Alyssa and Dawn Volunteer at the KIPP School
Houston, TX - September 13, 2017

Alyssa and Dawn recently volunteered at the KIPP School. Here’s what Dawn said about it: “Even though it said Kipp Pantry on the registration form, that’s not what we were doing. It is actually a distribution center for all of the school districts. We loaded 5 school buses full of all kinds of donated supplies (food, clothes, baby items, school supplies, household items, etc) that was then distributed to the 12 different school districts. YES….5 SCHOOL BUSES!!! We were exhausted after but it was totally worth it”

Thank you for your help Alyssa and Dawn, great job guys!!
