Hurricanes Harvey & Irma

Massive efforts are underway to stabilize the situations in Texas, Florida and the surrounding areas from the devastating impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Our capacity to recover is great, but donations are necessary and the best way to help. National disaster relief organizations like the American Red CrossThe Salvation Army and Team Rubicon, an organization that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, are only a few of the many options available. Give as you can to support the recovery efforts and those organizations who are helping to make a difference. ET

Thanks to our sponsor Regus Chicago, the market leader in office space, for helping to make our programs possible.
