People come first at Harbor Freight—both our customers, and the more than 23,000
Associates whose hard work and dedication contribute to our success. When a member
of the Harbor Freight family needs emergency assistance in the event of a personal
crisis due to domestic violence, unplanned medical bills, natural disasters or
other unforeseen circumstances, we’re there to offer short-term financial assistance
through our Employee Emergency Relief Fund.
The Employee Emergency Relief Fund is a nonprofit charitable organization funded
by associate contributions to help other associates in need. Since the Fund's
creation in 2014, we have helped hundreds of colleagues in personal situations
ranging from unforeseen short-term illnesses to funeral expenses of a dependent.
We have also assisted associates affected by regional disasters such as providing
water filtration systems for associates in Flint, Michigan whose drinking water
had high levels of lead to financial assistance for those in LA, SC and TX who
lost homes and possessions because of floods and hurricanes.
When an unexpected crisis occurs and a Harbor Freight Associate is in need, the
Employee Emergency Relief Fund is here to help.
If you are a Harbor Freight Associate and have been affected by an unexpected,
