Suntex Marina Investors LLC is providing assistance to people in Texas who have been harmed by Hurricane Harvey. 

The Dallas-based company said it is collecting donations for relief efforts from employees, members and customers through YouCaring.com.

“Suntex is a Dallas-based company with strong ties to southeastern Texas,” Ron TenEyck, vice president of operations for Suntex, said in a statement. “We are determined to have the greatest impact and do the greatest good for those affected. Therefore, 100 percent of the funds we raise will be given to local Texas charities, with the resources for direct assistance to those who need it most.

“In addition, our local marinas are each doing their own outreach; for example, Crosswater Yacht Club is running trailers full of items that first responders are in need of and our Dallas-Fort Worth marinas are collecting items for local shelters and churches that are taking in southeast Texas residents with nowhere else to go.”

Suntex also will donate 10 percent of all marine center sales that were made during the Labor Day weekend to local relief efforts. To coordinate these efforts, a social media campaign has been launched with the hashtag #suntexcares.
