Houston Strong: Employees Support Houston Efforts to Rebuild

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, our team remains committed to making an impact in our Houston community. This city is our home, not only for our business, but also for our families, friends, and neighbors. In the days and months to come we at Forney know no better way than to help rebuild, and we are humbled by the immediate response of individual employees who truly embody the spirit and values of our company.

Forney Project Coordinator Sarah Jane Moerbe initially jumped to action by preparing NRG for thousands of displaced Houstonians and sorting through masses of donations. After the storm settled, she worked to begin renovations at affected sites and sent supplies to her hometown of Orange, TX. Pictured is Sarah Jane alongside another member of the Forney Family, Mackenzie Bateman, working at Forney Superintendent Greg White’s affected home. Sarah Jane describes her experience:

“Although each day held a different experience, impacted a different person, and held different obstacles, there were many things that were undeniably similar: The devastation and need of the people we were able to serve each day was great, but even greater was their hope and joy from being cared for and witnessing the beginning of restoration.”

 

 

Values In Action: Camp Aranzazu Cleanup

Forney Employees Brian Chavis, Don Fernbach, Jason Burt, and Ricky Anderson volunteered their time in service to Camp Aranzazu over Labor Day Weekend. After the eye of Hurricane Harvey passed within miles of the Rockport Camp, both the landscaping and multiple buildings have significant damage.  Here’s a message from leadership at the Camp:

“One of the things that makes Camp Aranzazu most unique, besides our coastal location, is our very committed and generous friends. With your help, we are confident that we will restore the camp to its original beauty and will get back to the business of caring for children and adults with special needs and chronic illnesses. Their needs have not ceased during this tragedy. We are eager to fulfill our mission to these special campers and appreciate your concern and support from the bottom of our hearts.”
