Mercury One Charity Leads Fundraising Effort to Provide Immediate and Long-term Relief for Hurricane Harvey Victims

Organization commits 100 percent of donated funds directly to aid
victims

IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Through its non-profit organization, Mercury
One
is actively raising funds to support those impacted by the
recent and continued devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey along the
Texas coast, Houston area, east Texas and Louisiana. The organization is
ensuring 100 percent of the funding will be provided to six core
disaster relief partners.

Mercury One’s partners have pledged 100 percent of granted funds will
directly aid and assist individuals through search and rescue, basic
needs, humanitarian support, food and long-term clean-up and recovery
efforts. These partners are CitiImpact, Gleaning for the World,
Operation BBQ Relief, Somebody Cares, Team Rubicon and The Provisions
Project.

“Hurricane Harvey is already being deemed one of the most massive and
catastrophic events in U.S. history. In keeping with Mercury One’s
mission to restore the human spirit, we are taking swift action to
address the most immediate needs, while we enable and prepare for the
long-term support so desperately needed by millions of people across the
region,” said Mercury One Executive Director, Suzanne Grishman. “Our
organization and loyal supporters have a rich history of mobilizing
resources to have a meaningful impact in dire situations.”

“Such a large number of people in our state are underwater, losing their
homes and are worried about so much. I want to thank the donors for
caring and trusting Mercury One to get funds to those who need it. No
matter where you are in the world, we thank you for your prayers and
donations,” said Mercury One’s Founder, Glenn Beck.

Prior to Hurricane Harvey making landfall, Mercury One had been in
contact with its disaster relief partners. Throughout the event, each
partner has been in constant communications with Homeland Security, the
Office of Emergency Management, and the Texas chapter of the Voluntary
Organizations Active in Disaster. These organizations are now actively
deployed across the region with water, blankets, food, supplies and
volunteers.
