Help out Victims of Hurricane Harvey

Posted by Madeline Warren on August 30, 2017

Hurricane Harvey's devastation will be felt by Texans for weeks and years to come. The images and information coming out of this event remind us how often strangers and our neighbors are willing to help in a moment’s notice. Our thoughts and prayers are directed at all the families who have lost so much.

Our members carry a spirit of volunteerism, charity and concern. As result, we’d like to offer an extended option for those who’d like to help. Our non-profit partner, LINC Houston is located in and serving communities hit by the devastation but needs your help. Members can choose to donate their survey earnings directly to an organization providing boots-on-the-ground service like LINC. Simply, sign up to become an Op4G member through the link here and your survey earnings will go directly to LINC. Additionally, you can donate your survey earnings to another non-profit providing service to the affected area, the American Red Cross.
