A Word From Our President

Dear Team,
 
Having stores located around the country gives StrasGlobal the rare opportunity to experience all that Mother Nature can share with us. Whether it is hurricanes, wildfires, flooding, or 110+ degree heat – we get to see it all.
 
Please keep your fellow StrasGlobal Team Members in Texas and Louisiana in mind over the next few days. One of the most severe winter storms in history is putting this part of the country into a deep freeze. I know that this is not anything new to those of you who live in the northeast but believe me when I tell you that the south is not used to, or ready for, this type of weather. The storm is causing huge disruptions and misery and President Biden has declared a National Emergency in Texas.
 
We’ve asked everyone in these areas (including store, office and field personnel) to stay home until travel conditions improve. All of the stores in Texas and Louisiana have closed early either because they don’t have electricity or Team Members can’t get to them due to dangerous roads. The Temple office is currently closed too – so there may be delays in getting responses from the office team.
 
Furthermore, many of our Team Members are in their homes without power, heat, or water in sub-freezing weather. Some of the outages are the result of rolling black outs as electricity companies try to meet the high demand. The worst outages are where power lines are down due to falling trees or the weight of ice and snow. These homes may be without power for several days until services can be restored. Therefore, our office and field teams may not be able to work remotely from home as without power they are unable to carry out their responsibilities and are facing the more important question of how to keep warm. 
 
As always, we are here to help. If you need anything, please contact your line supervisor and we will see what we can do. If you have been affected by the storm don’t forget the StrasGlobal Team Fund. You can apply for financial help at teamfund@strasglobal.com. If you aren’t affected by the storm, or have been lucky not to suffer from it, please think of contributing. You can do so by visiting our StrasGlobal Team Fund site.
 
We are in this together and we are here for each other.
 
Take care. Stay well. Stay warm.
 
Roy
