Disaster Aid USA
Agee Financial Group
SagePoint – Advisor Group
Disaster Aid USA provides disaster relief and humanitarian assistance both at home and abroad when disaster strikes. Disaster Aid USA is a Rotary project and enacts Rotary values on the international stage. The organization does more than simply mobilize responders to disaster zones and act as first responders – volunteers help communities recover by removing debris, mucking and gutting buildings, tarping roofs and cooking meals. Disaster Aid USA has responded to many domestic natural disasters, including Hurricanes Harvey and Laura, as well as those stemming from international conflict in South Sudan and the Horn of Africa.
A veteran of Desert Storm, Larry Agee retired from the military and sought to apply his skills in civilian life. After volunteering with an international disaster charity’s response team, Larry was inspired to start his own charity and co-founded Disaster Aid USA in 2010. Over the past eleven years, Larry has served as Disaster Aid USA’s Executive Director and committed countless hours to the organization in a variety of capacities from managing logistics and transportation to raising funds. Larry’s entire family is involved with the organization, which demonstrates this leader’s commitment towards raising his own children to serve and help others in need.
