FIA has a long tradition of helping our friends and neighbors in need—whether it’s Futures for Kids, the Greater Chicago Food Depository or Gifts for the Homeless. Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas. Houston is a hub for commodity production and trading, particularly energy and agricultural futures, and Hurricane Harvey hit close to home for many of FIA's members. We have more than 150 member firms and individuals based in Texas, and many are located in the Houston area. FIA is helping the disaster recovery efforts by donating $5,000 to the Red Cross to provide shelter, meals, and comfort to families in distress. Additionally, we will be matching our employees' charitable contributions to the Red Cross.
Thank you for joining us in this effort to help our friends and colleagues in Texas recover from this disaster. Donate now.
