Batarse Family - Harvey Recovery

My name is Bryce Gates and I am from Dallas, TX. My girlfriend is from Houston and her mom, Antonieta Batarse and grandma, Antonieta Batarse (yes they both have the exact same name) homes in Houston were flooded during Harvey. The funds we are raising will be spent on cleaning supplies, labor costs for restoring flooring and walls, as well as helping toward replacing furniture and appliances. The funds will be withdrawn directly by Brigid's mom Antonieta Batarse where she will split them with her mother Antonieta Batarse.

These are pictures Brigid's Mom took of their home and her her 90 year old Grandmothers home, who is also their next door neighbor.

Please stop by Custom Dental of McKinney to donate "cleaning supplies" for those trying to clean and rebuild.

Or donate here to contribute towards the cleaning and rebuilding of their homes.

Brigid and I will be heading down Friday to help her family.

Harvey has hit close to home for us here in North Texas as many of us know of friends and family directly affected.

Some of you may know or have met my girlfriend Brigid. If you have, you know she is a very kind a compassionate person. Sweet to the core.

After a few years of being with Brigid I know exactly who to thank for raising such a selfless individual. Her mother and grandmother.

Among a list of adoring adjectives I could use to describe them the one that comes to mind now is they are both incredibly resilient women. Yet again their livelihood has been tested.

Two very close and wonderful God fearing women who happen to live next door to each other. They now for the 3rd time in two years have been flooded. Except this time was very different.

After nearly a week of holding up on the second floor of their home as the lower floor filled up to 4 feet of flood water they emerged to see the extent of the damage. And immediately got to work cleaning out the mess.

And a mess it is! It will take weeks to clean and months to rebuild.

I'm welcome any ideas to help them and their neighbors.

Thank you for your support!

God Bless,

Bryce Gates
