On Saturday, September 2 I left Austin at 5am and headed down to Southeast Texas with a horse trailer full of supplies from donations that were raised with this Go Fund Me account. It was an overwhelming experience to meet these individuals face-to-face that had just had their lives turned upside-down. I am going again THIS Saturday and NEED help.
I am from Southeast Texas and I am devastated by the floods that are affecting them. I was heavily involved with the floods in Wimberley and East Austin in recent years. I am staying involved for my hometown.
Very specific donations are needed so I am taking another trailer of supplies down. I am looking for the following supplies OR funds to purchase the supplies. I am praying I have another trailer full to go THIS weekend and I need your help.
~Diapers (All Sizes, size 1, 2, 3T, 4T, 5T were needed)
~Dog Food (Any Kind)
~Trash Bags (Yard/Landscape)
These are EVERYDAY supplies WE use. If you only have a roll of paper towels you can donate; PLEASE do so. I will come pick it up from you this week or you can drop it off at my house or office.
I am calling on my friends to help me make this happen. If you don't know me and/or feel uncomfortable donating to my efforts, I understand but please donate to the Salvation Army or somewhere.
I will be posting pictures of the areas that your supplies are helping. I am going back to Beaumont, Sour Lake & Nederland areas.
Rest assured that ALL these donations are going directly from MY hands and into THEIR hands. I am NOT dropping them off at a donation bank.
Thank you in advance for caring and sharing,
Colby Leigh Cotton
