PALMco Energy Fulfills $1,500 Matching Fund Donation to the Houston Food Bank for Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

The energy supply company contributed a total of $8,000 to help victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma


PALMco Energy, a privately-owned energy supply company, today announced that it is fulfilling the full amount pledged through the $1,500 matching fund campaign to the Houston Food Bank, established to provide aid to families impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In the immediate aftermath of the hurricane’s devastation, the company donated $2,500 to the Houston Food Bank and established a $1,500 matching fund microsite to encourage further contributions from customers, employees, and the public, which raised several hundred dollars. The company also donated $4,000 to the Feeding South Florida Food Bank to provide aid to victims of Hurricane Irma.

“We are proud to join the millions of Americans who have come together in this time of need,” said Robert Palmese, President of PALMco Energy. “From everyday Americans sending what they can to first responders on the frontlines, the response to the series of Hurricane disasters that have devastated the Gulf Coast, Florida, and Caribbean, is deeply moving. It was only just five years ago that our hometown in Brooklyn was similarly impacted by Superstorm Sandy. We are deeply grateful to our customers, employees, and the whole of the PALMco Energy family who joined us in supporting needed relief efforts.”

PALMco Energy’s matching donations mobilecause site will continue to accept contributions. All proceeds will go toward funding the Houston Food Bank’s ongoing relief efforts along the Gulf Coast.
