3esi-Enersight Houston Flood Relief

Houston, among many Southeast Texas communities, has been devastated by record rainfall and tornadoes that has resulted in the greatest natural disaster in US history.  As a 3esi-Enersight community, we are coming together to help Houstonians rebuild their lives, targeting especially those most vulnerable in the wake of the storm.

We have set up a crowdfunding page on YouCaring.com to help raise funds in support of Houstonians, and are urging our employees, customers, and friends to donate what they can.

3esi-Enersight sends its support and encouragement to the people of Houston and other areas affected by hurricane Harvey. We salute all first responders, volunteers and local officials for their tireless work during this emergency. We are thankful that all 3esi-Enersight Houston staff are safe, and we look forward to contributing to the rebuilding process, both financially and through volunteer efforts. Houston Strong!
