Flood Recovery

We don't need to tell you how devestating Hurricane Harvey was to Texas. In the small town of Wharton, which is located on the banks of the Colorado River, river levels rose by more than 40 feet, putting most of the town underwater for several days. The extent of the damage is still unknown, but looks to be massive. 

As the bulk of disaster relief efforts focus on Houston, places like Wharton have had to rely on their small town values as neighbors band together to rebuild their own communities. We formed the Wharton County Recovery Team in 2015 to help coordinate these efforts. In the past two years, we've helped to direct thousands of volunteer-hours of rebuilding work to the places where it is needed most and have provided tens of thousands of dollars of building supplies to dozens of houses in reconstruction. We have done muckout, replaced drywall, hung sheetrock, flood-proofed houses, eliminated mold, and helped people get back on their feet. 

We know that there is a lot of work yet to do. We know that this is a marathon, and not a sprint. We're here for the long haul, and we're ready to do what it takes to get our community running again. 

What we need is your help. While thousands rushed to provide in-kind donations of food and supplies in the wake of Harvey, money is needed to fund rebuilding efforts. 100% of the funds we receive goes directly to rebuilding efforts - we have no paid staff and no administrative costs. All donations are tax-deductible. 

Thank you again for the love and support. This disaster has given us the opportunity to see how strong we are as a community, and we know that that strength is what will get us through this.
