TSMs Show Henry Schein Cares Spirit in Hurricane Recovery Efforts
TSMs Help Rebuild Home of Elderly Houston Couple
As the floodwater receded in Houston, the Henry Schein Houston Field Sales Team decided to work as a team to help their community recover. They connected with a local church in Sugarland, Texas, and were sent to help an elderly couple in need.
That couple had few resources to turn to after Harvey. They had no insurance, and lost the entire first floor of their house and their two cars to the flood. They were extremely thankful when the Henry Schein team arrived to help. The team spent the day tearing down sheetrock, kitchen cabinets, and other damaged items, and cleared the house of mold, mildew, and debris left from the storm.
Javier Lozano, a Zone General Manager for Henry Schein Medical, was part of the relief team.
“For Team Schein, it’s what we do and who we are! It was an opportunity to help a brother and sister in need, come together as a family, and experience how blessed we truly are,” he said.
Thanks in large part to Javier and his team, the couple will soon be able to continue rebuilding their home and making a fresh start in life.
Henry Schein, Inc., its supplier partners, Team Schein, and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation committed $500,000 in cash and health care products to relief organizations aiding the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
