Resources You Can Use: Flood Damage

Many of our BSD team members have been affected by the recent flash floods. We have put together information on resources that can help you through this difficult period, including those offered by BSD and external agencies. Check out the resources below, and let your manager know of your situation to see how BSD can assist.

Financial Assistance: Helping Hand Fund

To support our colleagues in need, the BSD Board of Commissioners has authorized the addition of $5,000 to our Helping Hand Fund. This fund was established to help team members facing hardship, like flood damage.

Click here for a Helping Hand Fund Application and apply for assistance. Contact the BSD Benefit Department at 314.982.1400, x3006 if you have any questions.
