Houston Rescue and Relief Trip

We will be loading up and driving supplies down to Houston relief centers in the aftermath of this devastating hurricane and continued flooding. Once there, we'll be joining in rescue efforts of people and pets.

Please help us fill this giant SUV full of blankets, towels, socks, clothing, food, water, and comfort items for the children affected by this tragety.

We are Ben Garves and Cassie Beach out of Austin, transplants from Seattle and New York. We're independently aiding many rescue operations, from Austin Pets Alive to the Red Cross. Starting with one large, personally-funded delivery of 200lbs of food and 600lbs of water to Austin Pets Alive and the Bethel Heavenly Hands Church. Then, we'll be aiding the Houston Harvey Rescue group in human rescue operations in the Beaumont area. Each night we'll be taking the amount fundraised that day and making a supply run on behalf of these organizations, grabbing exactly what they need, based on our experiences in the day's operations.
