BOMA Raises Over $30,000 For Hurricane Harvey

Sept. 6, 2017

The GoFundMe campaign exceeded the $30,000 dollar mark in just six days, aspiring to reach $100,000 in raised funds. 

Houston BOMA created a GoFundMe account to help Houston BOMA members who have lost their homes and belongings in Hurricane Harvey and accompanying floods.  

The proceeds received will go directly to Houston BOMA members to assist in putting their lives back together.

Houston BOMA donated the first $10,000 to the account, and has since received enough donations to exceed the $30,000 dollar mark in just six days, with a hopeful end goal of $100,000.

BOMA International also is helping the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with their relief efforts. ALAN is seeking donated warehouse space, with priority requests for 10,000 square feet in San Antonio and Austin to support shelters, and another 50,000 to 100,000 in Houston for the Red Cross.
