On August 25, 2017 Hurricane Harvey made landfall in mainland USA after a record 12 years since a major hurricane landfall in the country. In a four day period, areas received over 40 inches (1000mm) of rainfall resulting in catastrophic flooding and damage in Texas and its surrounding areas. The floods inundated thousands of homes, displaced more than thirty thousand people and prompted over seventeen thousand rescues.
Recovering from a major natural calamity is never easy, and requires aid from many sources. Clean up and rebuilding efforts have begun in Texas, with an incredible outpouring of volunteer assistance where neighbours are helping each other in selfless acts of rescue.
We at Valrhona recognize the need for help towards the rebuilding efforts for the aftermath of the storm. We stand with the community in Texas working to rebuild after Hurricane Harvey. As a part of our efforts, from September 6 through September 17, we will be donating 10% of all sales from our retail site towards flood relief efforts.
Please join us in supporting this important cause.
