Hi everyone, Sherrie here! 

I am from Detroit and have lived there my whole live, I own Boost 1 Marketing and have been blessed to be able to work in Detroit and in Houston the past 4 years! I have a condo here in downtown Houston and I've been here the past two weeks for work. I was originally scheduled to fly home to Michigan today (Monday, August 28), however, my flight has been canelled and rescheduled three times, I am not sure when I will be able to leave Houston.

While we have horrific snow storms and bad weather in Michigan and throughout the midwest, I have never seen something like Hurricane Harvey and the effect it's had on a city! 

People are leaving their homes with only the clothes on their back, unable to take any of ther belongings or treasured items from their home with them. Some people are sleeping on their rooftops to survive as they attempt to save their children and families from this horrific storm.

Many of my Detroit friends, companies and clients have reached out asking how they can help so while in Houston, I'm putting things into action! Thanks to my team and my good friend Dante Dasaro, owner of Dante Dasaro Photography who have stepped up this Saturday #Detroit2Houston will be taking place!

DAY 1
The #Detroit2Houston event will be held SATURDAY, September 2 in the parking lot of the Airtime Trampoline & Game Park in Troy, Michigan (662 E. Big Beaver Rd) from 9am-4pm.

DAY 2
1-4pm
Greater Grace Temple (Rogell Golf Course Parking Lot)
18601 Berg Rd at 7 Mile Rd.
Detroit, MI

We need the following items:
BACKPACKS stuffed with toiletries! 
Toiletries - Tooth paste, Tooth brushes. body soap, shampoo, lotion, brushes, combs
Diapers and baby wipes - anything for babies
Sheets
Pillows
Socks
T-shirts
Stick lighters/Glow sticks
Small First Aid Kits
Towels & Wash Clothes - (New)

If you want to help and cannot come bring the needed goods to our event, please feel free to donate any money you can and this will be used to get the supplies here to Texas along with any extra money going ot the Houston Flood Relief Fund, which I have worked with in the past. 

We will use EVERY dollar to help people directly in the community in hopes of getting them necessary supplies to survive and get back on their feet.

Please comment below if you have any questions I'm happy to give updates and of course get any help we can for the people of Houston! 

Thank you Detroit for getting together to help those in need across the country!

Let me be CLEAR - the money donated is paying for any insurance needed for the trucks (most companies did not even ask for that as Penske and others have stepped up to help and pay for this) AND the rest is going to the Houston Flood Relief. Unfortunately we have had to work on getting additional trucks donated at this time and I will continue to keep you guys posted. Thank you!

Hello All! For some reason I cannot reply directly to your comments so trying to get this done here as best as possible. I am still in Houston, stuck here until next week.

If you'd like to volunteer, please email MaryAnnePb1m@Gmail.com

You can bring Diapers in their boxes, however you have them, it's OK we will be able to put them in the baby area anyways when they get to Houston and mothers can take what they need.

The items we listed are SUGGESTED - thanks to everyone teaming together we now have THREE trucks to fill!

Come out, support and please continue to SHARE this event!
