Legacy Employee Emergency Assistance Fund

As we all know, Hurricane Harvey had a catastrophic impact across Southeast Texas, including the Greater Houston and Beaumont areas served by Legacy. Many of your fellow employees lost homes, vehicles, and property in the flooding, and need our help reclaiming their lives. Legacy’s core values include Devotion to Our Communities and that begins with caring for our own. We pride ourselves on being good neighbors, and there has never been a time in Legacy’s history when this has been more important.

The new Legacy Employee Emergency Assistance Fund will provide financial assistance to active full-­ and part-­time employees

  • who have lost or been temporarily displaced from their primary residence by Hurricane Harvey
  • who have suffered catastrophic property loss because of Hurricane Harvey
  • who have lost their primary automobile/vehicle

Eligible employees may apply for grants of up to $1,000. They may also request to cash-out up to 40 hours of PTO time. Employees, their families, and board members may donate to the fund. Legacy will match up $50,000 in donations. Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
