Weathering Florence and Rebuilding in Her Aftermath

Here in the Carolinas, where Schaffer Associates is headquartered, we are beginning to feel the impacts of Hurricane Florence.  Those on the coast are already under the gun and are expecting a “once in a lifetime” storm with potentially devastating results.  And while the storm’s exact path is still unknown, those of us inland are bracing for incredibly high amounts of rain and damaging wind.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who will be affected by Florence in the days and weeks ahead.

As we prepare for the storm, we wanted to take a moment to recognize the heroes who are already taking action to help those in need.  Many individuals, companies, and organizations within our own industry will donate countless hours and millions of dollars’ worth of supplies, equipment, and building materials to help communities recover and rebuild.  In Florence’s wake, our industry will rise to the occasion as it always does.  For those of you who are a part of that process, we say thank you.

Please join us in praying for those in the path of the storm and for the first responders who are already at work saving lives.  And again, thank you for being part of an industry that is always there to help people rebuild.
