Galveston Firefighter Relief Fund

My name is Daniel Martinez and I am the 1st Vice President of the Galveston Firefighters Association Local 571. Hurricane Harvey came through our area completely devastating homes in its wake. 10 of our firefighters suffered severe loss and 5 out of those 10 did NOT have flood insurance. 100% of the funds raised from this campaign will go directly to the guys that are displaced from the storm. All funds will be used for supplies for rebuilding their houses. A majority of the funds will be divided between the 5 guys that did not have flood insurance, and the remaining funds will be divided up between the other 5 that are emptying their bank accounts just to clean up their homes while giving them some spending money until the insurance can kick in which can be weeks.

As a first responder, we are ready at any time to come to the aid of the community, but after Hurricane Harvey these firefighters are in desperate need of the communities help. Please help our local heroes and give anything you can spare. Every dime will be used to help our firefighters rebuild their homes after this tragic event. Thank you so much!!!
