Cullman United Way Sends $8,500 To Hurricane Harvey Victims

by | Sep 12, 2017 | City News, Community, County News, Cullman, Cullman City, People

You may recall Hurrican Harvey disaster relief effort initiated by the United Way of Cullman County at the end of August:

The United Way of Cullman County established a relief fund to help with the recovery needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The funds were being collected to help address the problems related to the devastating and widespread damage caused by historic flooding in the east Texas area.

All contributions donated to United Way’s Flood Relief Fund were used to help with both immediate, basic needs and long-term recovery services in Texas.

Since the above article appeared, citizens of Cullman County have donated a $8,535 to the United Way of Cullman County!

The Cullman United Way has written (and mailed) a check in that amount to the Greater Houston United Way.

Sammie Danford, the Director of the United Way of Cullman County, is impressed by the generosity and caring invested by the Cullman Community into this disaster relief effort:

“I want to offer a HUGE ‘Thank-You’ to everyone that helped through their donations with this effort. The people of Texas are facing unimaginable loss and challenges. This substantial outpouring of support from the citizens of Cullman speaks volumes about the level of caring and concern in this community. I could not be more pleased and impressed.”
