- The KDRF Application form has been attached to an email that was distributed to all employees for those who wish to print the form, complete it and submit it to the Corporate HR Department at email@example.com or via fax at 713.435.1080.

Contributions to the Kirby Disaster Relief Fund
Many of you are already aware of the devastation that has occurred and is continuing to spread in the area between Corpus Christi and the Texas/Louisiana border as a result of Hurricane Harvey and the resulting rain storms. Kirby employees around the Company are already asking how they can help those employees and their families who were impacted.
The Kirby Disaster Relief Fund was establish in 2005 for exactly this kind of situation. The purpose of the fund is to aid Kirby employees and their families who have been affected by a hardship situation or disaster such as this one. The Kirby Disaster Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity and allows contributors who make donations to the Fund to take a tax deduction for their contribution; and it also allows recipients of grants from the Fund to receive the grant on a tax-free basis.
There are several ways for you to make a donation to the Fund. You may contribute by 1) payroll deduction, which can be set up by your payroll department or 2) sending a check payable to the Kirby Disaster Relief Fund to the Kirby Human Resources Department, ATTN: KDRF at P.O. Box 1745 Houston, TX 77251-1745, or 3) if you have contributed to the Kirby Political Action Committee, you can designate all or a portion of that amount as a matching contribution to the Kirby Disaster Relief Fund.
The Kirby Disaster Relief (Payroll) Deduction Form and the PAC – Charitable Matching Contribution forms have been distributed to all employees by email.
Our thoughts are with the employees and their families who have sustained damage.

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO DO TO START THE RECOVERY PROCESS
Return home only when authorities indicate it is safe
Watch out for debris and downed power lines
Avoid flood water as it may be electrically charged from underground or downed power lines and may hide dangerous debris or places where ground is washed away.
If you have experienced water damage, take photos now. Develop a list of lost items. You’ll need to note whether the damage was caused by rising water (flood insurance claim) , or rain (your home owner/renters insurance claim)
Be sure to keep a list handy of all your medicines, including prescription number. If you can order extra, do it now. There may be a shortage as things as we begin to get back to normal.
Get to an ATM and get some cash. In the days to come, there may be merchants who won’t have the means to process credit card purchases.
If your car is okay, when the roads clear, fill up. It may be difficult for tankers to get back into the city quickly.
When you can, re-stock non-perishable foods. Grocery stores may have difficulty resupplying.
Power may still be intermittent – Stay prepared with flashlights, batteries etc.
Locate your home, auto, renters insurance policies, check book (even if bank on line), and any other important legal documents.
When this is all over, if you need help from your insurance company or FEMA, recognize that you might not be first on their list. It can take very long time periods for inspectors to arrive to make assessment of your flooded home. So, be sure you take as many photos as you can before you start ripping out wet dry wall and carpeting.
