Corporate giants are making big contributions to disaster relief organizations to help victims of Tropical Storm Harvey.
The storm is expected to leave behind billions of dollars in damages.
Companies have pledged more than $157 million to relief efforts as of Saturday afternoon, according to an estimate from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Sixty-nine companies had donated $1 million or more so far.
Walmart has pledged up to $20 million in cash, products and matching donations, while Verizon has contributed $10 million. On Friday, tech billionaire Michael Dell pledged $36 million to relief efforts.
The figures are constantly changing as contributions continue to pour in — and employee gift matching programs and customer donations are already bringing in even more funds.
“The corporate response thus far [has] been strong,” Marc DeCourcey, senior vice president of the Chamber of Commerce Foundation, told CNNMoney.
