Nearly $200,000 was given to 83 construction workers to help cover losses they incurred as a result of Hurricane Harvey

The AGC Charities Inc, the charitable arm of the Associated General Contractors of America, is providing 83 construction workers in Texas with a total of $195,000 in donated funds to help cover losses they incurred as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The checks, which amount to $2,350 per construction workers, are intended to help employees of firms that belong to the association cover the costs of uninsured and uncompensated damages caused by the storm.

“Contractors may do hard work, but they have soft hearts, especially when it comes to helping some of their own,” said Art Daniel the association’s national president and President & COO of Cedar Hills, Texas-based AR Daniel Construction.  “These checks won’t make everything right, but they will help these construction professionals get their lives back on track.”
