Hurricane Harvey

btel was able to help well over 200 of our customers devastated by the flooding. We thank all donors that made the fund possible. Brazoria Telephone Human Resources Generalist Tricia Ditto said the company, an independent area telecommunications provider, saw an immediate outpouring of support during flooding. Other business leaders called President Charlie Greenberg to offer donations, and btel promptly set up the btel Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund on Youcaring.com. “Donations to the site plus miscellaneous donations totaled just over $60,000,” Ditto said. “Two btel employees received disbursements to help with recovery of their flooded homes, Chad Thoe and Irma McKinney. A committee of btel employees was formed to determine how the remaining balance would be distributed.” The committee used records from phone calls and account suspensions to create a list of more than 200 people eligible for disbursement funds. Some refused to accept them, asking to pass them on to those in more need. Others came to the office and took home cash to help ease the hard times a little. As long as funds remained, the list grew.
