"I woke up this morning and saw $5,000 was deposited into my account. You don’t know the relief I felt when I saw that. Every dollar counts in a time like this and I just wanted to say thank you to whomever was able to help me in this situation. Thank you from me and my fiancé for helping me get back in my house and getting our lives back to normal." – Employee (Hurricane Harvey)
