Calling all Spring/Woodlands & KSTATE Family, Ryan Doerr (Owner of 3B’s Restuarant) needs our help!
As many of you already know, Hurricane Harvey ripped through the Houston area leaving devastation in many homes and businesses, yet hope and inspiration in our spirits. The man we are rallying for here is not only the owner of our favorite, family, game day burger joint, 3B’s on Rayford Rd, but is a man that has touched many lives throughout his short 28 years on this earth.
Ryan Doerr is not the kind of person to ask anyone for help, but is the first to offer his assistance with whatever the need may be. Anything from taking an employee to an eye exam and paying the bill for new specs, to offering up his home for 3 months to a stranger that needed a place to stay until he was back on his feet, to getting all his vendors to donate auction items and supplies for an annual childhood cancer benefit. Well Ryan, this time it’s our turn to help you.
The Storm: On Sunday, August 27th, the day after Harvey initially hit the Spring/Woodlands area, Ryan grabbed a couple of friends in the middle of the storm and sprang into action. He went up to 3B’s, which had already began to take on water, and without any concern for his own restaurant, he grabbed all of the food out of the freezers, and loaded it into a boat to combine efforts with Woodson’s and the Flying Pug. All food provided was cooked for those in need and 1st Responders working around the clock to ensure our safety. Once the food was delivered, Ryan joined the owners of each of the mentioned establishments to perform high water rescues through neighborhoods already under water and save those stranded in their homes.
The Aftermath: After the 3 feet of water receded from 3B’s, Ryan had discovered his livelihood had been severely impacted by Harvey. As mentioned previously, he is a selfless individual who would never ask for help to clean up his business, which is his pride and joy, nor would he would ask for donations to help rebuild. So we are asking for him, because he has been there for so many of us without having to be asked.
Dozens of volunteers from the community as well as friends, family, and local bars (Huge thanks to Flying Pug, Woodson’s Bar and Grill, and Exit 73) have already spent several hours gutting 3B’s restaurant. We have made major strides to prep for rebuilding even better than before.
Ryan is full of hope and dedication, something he has learned through his KSTATE football family, playing for Bill Snyder. You see Coach Snyder taught his players that a family is not always someone you share blood with, but your dedication, passion and soul. Ryan needs our help to rebuild quickly, and is excited to get back to serving us all our favorite menu items, like the “Doerr Stopper”, his amazing wings, and the cheapest Miller Lites around!
Please help in our efforts to show your support not only for the rebuild of Ryan’s dream, but the rebuilding of his Spirit!
Sincerely and greatfully,
