In the News: Our Town America & Shipley Do-Nuts Stand for Hurricane Harvey Victim
Hurricane Harvey may be behind us, but the devastation is still impacting Texas lives. One of those lives happens to be Shipley Do-Nuts employee Lucia Flores.
After the hurricane damaged the Shipley Do-Nuts location where she worked, the flooding devastation seemed nearly impossible to remedy. And that’s when Our Town America stepped in.
Our Town America is a national new mover marketing company with a local Houston representative. The company started a Facebook fundraising campaign and raised nearly $3,000. They then donated their earnings to Shipley Do-Nuts. And here’s the best part:
Here’s the catch – local Shipley’s owner, Mike Simon, didn’t take a dime. He, along with Our Town America beside him, gave it all to Lucia – a devoted employee who has worked for Simon for years. Simon teamed up with local Our Town America franchise owners, Clint Finch and Mitchell Saulsberry, to surprise her with the check on Tuesday, October 3rd at the local Shipley’s store (located at 12403 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX, 77077).
