UFG establishes relief fund to help employees impacted by Harvey

Hurricane Harvey has ended but recovering from the devastation it left behind is only beginning. UFG employs 125 people at our Gulf Coast regional office in the Houston area of Webster, Texas. Fortunately, all of our employees are safe and accounted for but approximately 11 suffered moderate to severe damage to their homes. 

To assist our employees impacted by Hurricane Harvey, UFG has established an Employee Relief Fund. Contributions to our Employee Relief Fund are being accepted now through September 30, 2017. All contributions are tax deductible.
