Helping Hands After Harvey

We are a Canadian family living in Richmond, Texas who had to evacuate our home due to the life threatening danger of hurricane Harvey. We are incredibly fortunate our home was not affected by the floods but being so close to so many who were, we have decided to help those who really need it.
My husband is a contractor and local business owner who is able bodied and has the skills and tools to help those who need help recovering and rebuilding their homes.
We intend to use donations to help provide the many essential necessities for babies and children, ensuring they have clean water, clothing items, food, diapers, blankets and more! I am going to be buying as much gently used and second hand baby and children's toys and items to give to those in need.
We also intend to help animals and shelters who are in need of food and other items!
We are donating to our many neighbours and friends within out community who were devastaed by Hurricane Harvey. 
Every little bit helps. $5 can go a long way to people who are desperate and in dire need of something as simple as garbage bags or a container of formula for their baby.
Items in demand:
- Rubber gloves
- Painters masks
- safety glasses
- Large yard trash bags
- Large Plastic Trash Cans
- Colored Duck Tape (red ideally so owners can clearly marked items to throw away)
- Grey Duck Tape
- Extension cords
- Power strip
-
- Cleaning buckets
- Rags
- Bleach
- Mops
- Kilz (with paint brush to apply)
- Window cleaner
- Plastic Tarp
- Paper Towels
- Plastic spray bottles
- garden rake
- - work gloves

Other Donations:
- Bottled Water / Gatorade / Iced Tea / Juice Boxes
- Coolers
- Ice
- Granola Bars, etc.
- Laundry detergent
- Fabric Softener
- General non-perishable food items (no peanuts)
We would like to buy fans, dehumidifier s and other tools to help restore people's homes.
We hope to provide services that help clean up properties and homes from flood damage.

We have already bought many supplies thanks to many of you and have dropped them off at Gallery Furniture in Southwest Houston, which has opened it's doors to flood evacuees as a shelter and safe place to stay, as well as a donation drop off and pick up! Thank you everyone for your big generous hearts!!
