Rally Point Management Employees Rally for Big Bend Area Support
Fort Walton Beach based Rally Point Management (RPM) employees added hurricane relief opportunities to their schedules over the last three weeks. Executives and employees provided volunteer support to the communities impacted by the recent hurricane.
Leadership and employees of RPM assisted in preparing for landfall and then transitioned immediately into recovery assistance with tree clearing, supply delivery, and emergency facility repairs for families and farms in the hurricane impacted area. Some of the RPM team assisting elderly and disabled Mary Esther and Fort Walton Beach neighbors preparation of their homes while numerous others of the team began delivery of critical supplies as soon as the storm had moved through the area. “I never dreamed I would deliver food and water by canoe” stated one responder who also built new corrals for displaced livestock and assisted in establishing emergency supply chains to a remote farm. Another responder took climbing equipment to safely engage trees that posed an immediate danger and provide access to properties.
CEO Chris Crutchfield recognized that “from personal financial support to local and team needs to employee support of fellow employees and the community, this immediate and spontaneous volunteer spirit showcases the spirit of RPM employees.”
