Updated Message on Hurricane Relief
Posted on 09.15.2017
Our country has now been hit by two hurricanes in a very short period of time. Those impacted by Harvey are still cleaning up, drying out, and repairing their lives—and will be for some time. Hurricane Irma caused severe damage and power outages in Florida and beyond. Our thoughts are with those struggling with the aftereffects of both storms.
CareerStep would like to reaffirm our desire to help those affected and reach out to our students, graduates, college partners, and clients who are dealing with recovery from Hurricane Irma or Hurricane Harvey.
If your CareerStep studies or program has been interrupted or in some way affected, please contact us as your situation allows. Email operations@CareerStep.com with your name, your student number, and a description of your circumstances, or call 888-657-5752 and select Operations. We will be providing ongoing special support options for those in need.
Nationwide relief efforts are ongoing. If you want to help, please contact one of the organizations listed below:
• The American Red Cross (https://www.redcross.org/) has a telephone hotline for donations from citizens: 1-800-HELP-NOW (1-800-435-7669).
• The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is taking a lead role in coordinating the massive mobilization of resources for urban search and rescue efforts, housing, food and medical care. You can learn more on their website: https://www.fema.org.
• Feeding America (https://www.feedingamerica.org/) is the nation’s largest charitable hunger-relief organization.
CareerStep President and CEO
Living in Florida, it really touches my heart to know that CareerStep cares about their students. It has really taken a weight off of my shoulders being able to work around the power and internet outages in my area. Thank you so much for your care and assistance!
Thank You. We had a little damage in Hinesville, GA. Not as bad as Matthew though. Thanks for the information and support that you and CareerStep give its students.
Hi, Looking for a smaller local organization in Florida supporting the community that may not have the brand awareness of a Red Cross or Oxfam. Interested in sending our contribution of aloha to our fellow coasties.
I live in SW Florida and just got power back on. I had a little setback with the end of my last quarter due to the prep for and damage from Irma. Thanks for the support!
Thanks FEMA & State of TX for assistance in restoration of elderly Father’s home in 2005 and 2017.
