The impact of Hurricane Harvey has reached the entire Gulf Coast of Texas and
beyond. The rains that affected the Houston area also stretched into Southeast
Texas and Southwest Louisiana.
Harvey has affected 26 employees throughout the affected area. Starting Friday,
September 1st, a team of volunteer Coburn's employees and some of our vendor
reps from outside the affected areas have been on the scene to help start the
process of cleaning up. The cleanup will continue for quite some time as we
still have some homes that are not accessible due to high water.
We have established this go fund me account in response to those friends of
Coburn's who have asked how they can help. All of the money raised will go to
these employees who right now are going through an extremely difficult time.
Thank you for supporting the Coburn Family. While you may not be able to
physically help, this is certainly another way that you can contribute and it is
If you would like to help those Coburn's employees,
We have set up a Go Fund Me
Donations to the Coburn’s Go Fund Me account are not tax
deductible. Donations collected by Go Fund
Me will be going to Coburn's employees affected by
the floods after Go Fund Me collects a small service charge.
Make checks payable to Coburn Cares and send to the attention of Melisa Winn at the Coburn's Service Office in Beaumont, Texas:
Attn: Melisa Winn
PO Box 2177
Beaumont, TX 77704-2177
100% of the donations sent by check will go to our employees in need.
You can also use your credit union account to transfer funds to Coburn Cares. Please email Debra Norman at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can handle the donation from your account.
The upcoming weeks and months will no doubt be hard, but
the Coburn's family will be here to help. We thank all of
you for your assistance, both day to day as well as in times of
need. Our Southeast Texas co-workers truly
appreciate all the help and well wishes.
