Brian Linthicum and his family have lived in the Port Arthur area for 65 years. He and his wife Vicki, now retired from the City of Port Arthur, raised their four children in the area. Their children Chris, Toni, and David (along with a small army of grandchildren) still live close by.
On the 29th THREE of their homes were left underwater.
Through the years (and many hurricanes) Brian and his family have always lent a helping hand to others in need. During Brian's long tenure with the City of Port Arthur, he stayed behind as his family evacuated to assist the city and its citizens during and after each storm. Even now, his son David is out rescuing others in the community.
As of now, 3 of their family homes have flooded and 3 cars are damaged by water. No one in the family is covered by flood insurance.
The 5000 dollar goal is just a drop in the bucket so we encourage you to give anything you can. No amount is too small.
