In an effort to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, Veritas Funding is putting together a relief effort and inviting anyone to donate and participate as they can. Brandt Miles, the branch manager of the Layton branch, is spearheading this effort. He is working with several pastors and bishops in the Rockport, Texas area to deliver items in need. Rockport was hit hard by the hurricane, suffering widespread devastation, and is one of the areas in biggest need right now. Brandt and his family will be collecting donations, then traveling to Texas to disperse the donations and help with cleanup efforts.
Supplies and checks can be dropped off at the Veritas Funding South Ogden office by 10:00 am on Thursday, September 14th. The South Ogden office is located at 5926 South Fashion Point Drive, Suite 210. We appreciate anything you can drop off! That said, some items are in higher demand than others:
