Your Help Is Needed Now! Nineteen AZZ Employees Need Assistance

It’s been nearly three weeks since Tropical Storm Imelda flooded Beaumont, Texas, but the devastating aftermath is still being felt by 19 plant workers at AZZ Galvanizing – Beaumont.

Many AZZ employees lost homes, cars, and even simple necessities, such as clothing and mattresses during the worst flooding since Hurricane Harvey. In light of this recent flooding, the AZZ Cares Foundation is seeking donations for the employees who are in urgent need of assistance.

As an example of just one of the 19 plant workers who is requesting assistance, Ricky Harper, a production worker for AZZ Galvanizing – Beaumont, lost his car in the floodwaters while trying to take his wife, Stacey, to her monthly cancer treatment at MD Anderson in Houston. Hours later, the couple had to grapple with another loss – their home, which was in ruins because of the catastrophic flooding.

“Taking care of my wife and being blessed with a job is what keeps me going through hard times like this, said Ricky. “I’m the one who takes care of her, so I have to keep going no matter what.”
