Hurricane Harvey’s devastation in the Houston area, where Atria operates five of its 14 Texas communities, has resulted in three Atria retirement homes being evacuated and distress for many employees.
For anyone who donates money to help the Atria employees with expenses during the storm, Atria Darien is holding a thank-you barbecue lunch at noon on Wednesday to show its appreciation.
Three Atria retirement homes were evacuated for safety to North Houston and Tyler, Texas before the storm hit.
“Many of our 350-plus Atria employees in the area have been displaced and many are working around the clock to ensure the safety of our residents and co-workers,” an announcement from the company said.
Atria has a nonprofit organization, Atria Cares, to provide emergency financial assistance (not loans) to Atria employees who need it.
To raise money for Atria Cares, Atria Darien is holding a “Texas-size BBQ fundraiser luncheon” at 12 noon on Wednesday, Sept. 6 for anyone who makes a donation. The event takes place at Atria Darien, 50 Ledge Road. For more information, you can call 203-662-1090.
