Flood relief for Gootee Family

Due to the devastating record flooding along the Brazos River from Hurricane Harvey, the Gootee family of five (Jay, Stacey, Alyson, Adam, and baby Caroline) have been forced to evacuate from their home in Wallis, Texas.

The Gootee family is safe but without a home!

Their home is currently inundated with several feet of water and the total destruction is unknown. Their housing situation is bleak and the Gootee family will need to begin the process of recovering. 

In times of devastation and destruction, we rely on family and friends. My name is Sarah and I am Jay’s sister. I ask you to contribute to reunite Jay, Stacey, Alyson, Adam and Caroline. 

The funds gathered will contribute to an estimated three months of minimum living expenses. The money raised will be given to Jay and Stacey to be used at their discretion.
