Houston Flood Relief

Hurricane Harvey has brought devastating floods to Houston.  

The city is currently underwater and we are still expected to get another 25 inches of rain throughout the week. 

There are single mothers with toddlers hiding in attics as flood waters fill their homes rapidly.

Certain areas have water that is chest high in the streets making it extremely difficuly to evacuate to higher ground.

Many people have been displaced from their homes and are in immediate danger.

This fundraiser will provide those who have lost everything with essential resources such as water and food and aid in the effort to rescue and evacuate those that are trapped in high water.

All of the resources will be distributed by me personally as well as being used to support other local efforts that are underway.

I am in Katy (Westside of Houston) with little flooding at the moment so I am able to receive and distribute resources from our position.

I have a pickup truck and am actively working on getting a boat to reach as many people as possible.

Please help with what you can. The smallest amount can make a huge difference.  

A  case of water that costs $3-$5 can go a long way in helping the people of Houston.

Thanks for your time and contributions.

 

As of 8/28/17 4:00 pm CST we have 7 boats en route from Waco, Marble Falls and San Angelo with many people as well to help.

 

We are also coordinating a supply effort in Midland/Odessa Texas  to bring approximately 5 trailers loaded with supplies to Houston. 

The west side of Houston (Katy area) where I am located has been relatively safe up to this point but is starting to get bad.  We are working 24/7 to provide relief efforts and get outside help into Houston to help.
