Answering the Call
Caring for those in need in Port Aransas, Texas after Hurricane Harvey
It literally began with a phone call, "do you think you can come help?" Of course the unwavering answer was YES! We had been watching the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey unfold, as most of America did, watching the weather station. Decades of Hill Country friendships and client relationships
offered a natural bridge from Bulverde/Spring Branch to Port Aransas, because so many people we knew had secondary homes or fishing boats there. In previous years, we even hosted vendor/client appreciation weekends in "Port A." But when President and Owner, Jason Gallas, went to assess the situation, a major business decision was concluded. Tri-Built Services, Inc. was not only going to help, we were going to invest in the resources necessary to restore Port Aransas.
Jason spent days talking to hurricane victims, helping them navigate with the insurance companies and FEMA, and bringing work crews down to begin clean-up that was not for the faint of heart or stomach! Additionally, we hired two more Project Managers, who not only had the servant-hood culture required to be a TBS employee, but specialized knowledge of flood damage. Because these victims' worlds were turned upside down, we also turned upside down to meet them where they were at. Together, our clients and Tri-Built Services Port Aransas division, are making strides towards making all things new.
