Hurricane Harvey has left a wake of devastation across the Texas Gulf Coast and parts of Louisiana. It has caused flooding and damage that has displaced people and businesses, and knocked out more than 11 percent of U.S. refining capacity, 25 percent of U.S. Gulf Coast oil production, and closed ports along the Gulf Coast.
At M. Holland, our deepest sympathy, concern, and thoughts are with our suppliers, customers, and all people and businesses impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We are working to limit any interruptions to service by identifying affected orders, monitoring logistics conditions, managing commercial holds and communicating information and updates to our customers and suppliers in a timely manner.
In the meantime, for those who wish to personally support those impacted by the storm, below is a list of disaster relief organizations, food and clothing banks, and special needs and animal assistance organizations that are in need of help.
