HURRICANE HARVEY DISASTER RELIEF

$2,200 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 38 people in 6 months
Our team of former military, police and nursing volunteer personnel will be traveling to Houston/Katy, TX Thursday from DFW and providing rescue and relief to victims of Hurricane Harvey. The team is headed up by Charlie Walker, a police officer who is seasoned in hurricane rescue, being his 7th hurricane to deploy to. Robert Hilger (military veteran), Joe Brewer(military veteran) Terry Miller, Brandon Williams, Hayley Runnells(CNA) Kimberly Martinez (RN) and Crystal Glaser (dog whisperer) and myself (SPTA). 

We are raising money for fuel and supplies to help with rescue by boat and transport those who need shelter to a safe and designated area.  We are coordinating with Katy, TX fire department and Jade Humanity/Jonathon Lewis of Houston for appointed relief efforts and supply/shelter areas. 

We have access to 55 gallon drums used to refuel boats and vehicles. Filling those up before we take off, will be 100$ compared to the climbing fuel prices down South. Even 5$ is 2 gallons of gas!
All monetary donations will be used for fuel, supplies, evacuation support and rescue efforts. I will personally be withdrawing these funds and monitoring the use of them for our team outside of gofundme during our excursion. The excess money raised will be delivered to Katy fire department in Katy, TX.

WE ALSO NEED clothing, shoes, non-perishable food items, bottled water, clean dry blankets, towels, hand sanitizer, lysol wipes, toiletry items, tampons, aspirin/tylenol/advil, band aides, first aid kits, canned food, plastic utensils (no knives), paper towels, toilet paper, soap, toys for children, books, coloring books, baby formula, baby food, and diapers. Accepting any and all donations. Please reach out to us. We will be leaving from Dallas, TX Thursday and returning Sunday. If you'd like to join our team, please contact me. PLEASE contact me directly for DROP OFF DONATION LOCATION INFORMATION.

As a fellow Texan, we want to help our neighbors. But please as a nation, come together to help in this devastating crisis.
We thank you in advance for allowing us to be the hands and feet of assistance by providing us with funds.

GOD BLESS TEXAS

UPDATE!!

We are now changing direction and headed to Beaumont, TX. The need there is increasing and our crew is ready to step in and provide assistance.

We will still be helping those in Houston and in Katy with supplies and monetary donations but at this point, helping those who are stranded and homes are continuing to flood is the greater need.

PLEASE PLEASE be praying for us as we will be putting ourselves in the midst of disaster. Pray for safety. Pray for wisdom. Pray for strength. Pray for endurance. Pray for those who are in need of help!!! This can not be overlooked.

God bless you all!

A big thank you to the owner of Icon Meals for donating meals for our team to have while we are out providing assistance. We have received an overwhelming amount of support in so many different ways! Such a huge thank you!!!

We are also in need of battery packs/portable chargers for devices so we can stay in contact with rescue personnel and apps like zello! Please consider these things if you are thinking about donating items for the team personally!

THANK YOU!!!

Please give what you can to victims of Hurricane Harvey and the devastating toll it has had on cities in our beloved Texas home.

The support we have received thus far has been overwhelming. We have living rooms full of items to be donated for those who have lost everything. We have already raised over 1300$ and DFW schools, centers and homes are being opened for evacuees to seek shelter, food and clothing.
During this time, any help is useful and positive.

Thank you for allowing us to be the vessels to rescue victims at this time!
Please consider time, money and resources you can give to aide from now and in the coming weeks, months and even years. GET INVOLVED. You can make a difference!
