Giving Back to Seafarers

Summer 2020

 

Fracht Houston partnered with Schroder Marine Services, Houston International Seafarers Center & Cooper/Ports America to bring goods and supplies to seafarers at the Port of Houston. Due to COVID-19, these men were stranded on their vessels with no way to purchase goods such as phone cards, books and other items they would typically purchase while at port. Together with our partners, Fracht raised over $30,000 to-date, purchasing a wide range of goods for several crews.

BANDAZUL

Beach Cleanup

May 2016

The Fracht family is proud to contribute to the efforts to eliminate such problems and work together as a team to maintain a healthy environment. Help Fracht turn the tide on ocean pollution and achieve the vision of a clean, healthy, and vibrant ocean for our future generations! .

Fracht Houston participated in a Adopt-The-Beach program at Galveston Island State Park to contribute to a healthier beach environment as well as demonstrate the importance of protecting and preserving Texas beaches.
As first timers, we learned that ocean pollution is a serious environmental problem that affects the health of people, endangers marine wildlife, and costs states and nations millions of dollars in wasted resources and lost revenue. Ocean pollution also complicates our shipping and transportation business by causing navigational hazards. At its core, however, ocean pollution is not an ocean problem; it is people problem.

Habitat for Humanity

February 2016

We are happy to announce that the Houston office joined Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Harris County to give back to the community. The project involved a monetary donation and volunteers helping in construction of a family’s future home.
