Bass Pro Shops is helping bring help to Hurricane Harvey victims in a big way by sending rescue boats.
They are partnering with local organizations and government agencies to send out over 80 Tracker boats to the communities most affected by flooding from the storm. The retailer has already worked with local, state and federal agencies to help rescue and relief efforts related to damages caused by the storm, so this Tracker boat initiative will be a great help.
In addition to the boats, Bass Pro has donated $40,000 worth of merchandise, including peanuts and beef jerky, towards relief supplies to aid both Convoy of Hope and the American Red Cross.
Bass Pro Shops has seven retail locations and boating centers in Texas, three of which are in the greater Houston area. They are also supporting their employees that have been impacted by the hurricane, through its Bass Pro Cares Fund, which gives support for critical living expenses in times of disaster.
The company urges anyone who wants to support local relief efforts to donate directly to the American Red Cross.
