The team assembled and delivered care packages with supplies and necessities for families in need, as well as offered assistance with debris removal and home repairs.

“We didn’t have to think twice about getting out there and doing our part in the relief efforts,” said Lance Loken, CEO of The Loken Group. “We owe so much to this community and we’re honored to be able to help on such a large scale.”

The Loken Group was also instrumental in the logistics behind Keller Williams’ KW Cares relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey.

2911 Fabrication, a full-service fabrication, design and field service company, graciously provided 24,000+ sq. ft. of their shop space to serve as the KW Cares command center – the hub for over 2,374 volunteers working tirelessly to assemble and deliver 15 semi-trucks worth of care packages. Food, water, hygienic items, cleaning supplies, diapers, pet food and more were all donated to Houstonians in need.

“It is truly amazing to see so many people come together in times of disaster to reach out a helping hand,” said Sydney Kempler, Chairman of the TLG Gives committee. “We’re incredibly proud to be a part of this city and will remain dedicated to helping Houston rebuild.”
