Hurricane Ida Relief Drop Off at Office Evolution
THE WOODLANDS, TX - There are few weather events in the southern United States that affect people and property as traumatic as hurricanes. Recently, Hurricane Ida plowed through several states, including Louisiana, exacting her violent winds and heavy rains on our neighbors to the east. When we hear of people needing assistance, our community always steps up to provide a helping hand. Office Evolutions, located off FM 1488 at Old Conroe Rd in the Marcel Town Center, is one of those local businesses that is helping to lead the community in these efforts. We have provided information and links below on how you can help Office Evolutions in their efforts. One person in particular from Office Evolution, Tina Matherne Asma, decided to kickstart the process of securing donations of money, food and other supplies to help Louisiana.
About Tina Matherne Asma
Tina Matherne Asma works for Office Evolution as a Business Center Manger for the Conroe-Woodlands area. She is from Louisiana herself and the idea of helping provide relief for Hurricane Ida victims is a project close to her heart. We asked her to tell us a little bit about why she is so passionate about this project. Her story is below:
“My name is Tina Matherne Asma. I was born and raised on Bayou Lafourche… Lockport, La which was severely damaged by Hurricane Ida… 50-60 miles north of Grand Isle / Port Fourchon where the hurricane category 4 made landfall. When I heard of the horrific damage of my hometown, my high school, Central Lafourche High School, and Victory Life Church I felt helpless and was moved to do something to help my family and friends back home. So I started posting to social media with a GoFundMe account for donations and Philip Anderson of Office Evolution agreed to local drop off location for supplies. By Friday of last week I raised $1000 and over $2500 in supplies!”
