We’re beside ourselves this week. Witnessing what was unleashed upon our community by nature was frightening, even for those of us accustomed to dealing with the heavy weather of the Great Plains. The resulting loss of life and destruction of homes and businesses is heartbreaking for all of us. And witnessing the courage and selflessness of first responders has been awe-inspiring.
We’re grateful that our firm and our employees were unharmed by the storms, and we remain able to conduct business without disruption. However, we have yet to become fully aware of how the destruction may have affected our clients. We’re working to assess the impact and help our clients navigate the extraordinary circumstances created by this week’s events.
Our state has long been known as a land of opportunity for hardworking people. Working together, we can make things OK again. Even though we can’t all be there to clean up debris or serve hot meals, we can still do our part to support the response teams through our local relief agencies. Below are links to contribute to the effort Please join us and help:
You can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
