CASE Dealer ASCO Donates Equipment to Help Team Rubicon and SBP Rebuild Home Devastated by Fire, Hurricane Harvey Flooding

CASE Construction Equipment dealer ASCO recently provided a TR310 compact track loader and CX130D excavator to disaster recovery nonprofits Team Rubicon and project leader SBP.

Years later, in 2015 the home burned to the ground, leaving only the laundry room intact. Ramraj’s husband passed away shortly after, leaving her alone to shoulder the burden of rebuilding while she lived in what remained of her home. Then in 2017, what was left of the Ramraj’s home was flooded during Hurricane Harvey.
