During the first two weeks of September, the San Antonio OneBeacon Government Risks office hosted a drive for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Having watched their close neighbors to the east deal with the devastation of Harvey, the San Antonio staff promptly stepped up!
Brian Latimer, Underwriting Manager, said, “being just a couple short hours away, areas like Rockport and Port Aransas are very familiar to us and become our ‘go to’ weekend getaways so reaching out to lend a hand came naturally.”
When the storm left, coastal residents were faced with the daunting task of cleaning up the devastation which led the San Antonio office to collect household items to assist. Themed days such as “Trash Bag Thursday” and “Waggy Wednesday” (dedicated to our furry friends), were held and the San Antonio office was able collect an SUV full of much needed items for their neighbors.
The San Antonio office worked in conjunction with the Texas Diaper Bank and the San Antonio Food Bank to ensure the items would be delivered promptly to those that needed it most.
