Houston Harvey Disaster Relief

Hurricane Harvey in Houston has displaced thousands of residents from their homes and the hurricane is only halfway over. Many people will return home to major water damage, no transportation, no food, and no clothing. The funding from this campaign will be given directly to individual families (names and pictures will be communicated at the end of the campaign) who have been affected by the hurricane. Funding will be used for temporary housing, food, and other necessities until these families are able to recover.

As a native of Houston now living on the East coast, I would like to be able to help my family and friends who have communicated that they have had to be rescued from their homes due to fast rising water. Not only will I be helping through this GoFund Me campaign, I will also be hosting a toiletry drive in my area to hand out in Houston when I arrive to volunteer on Monday, September 4th.

The funding from this campaign will reach these individual families faster than help from large non-profits and government agencies. I will be withdrawing the money from this campaign and distributing it personally by check to 15 families in the area. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your support.
