My name is Kathren Lee, I am orignally from Southeast Texas. My hometown, Groves, Texas, and the surrounding area was hit pretty hard by the flooding caused by Hurrican Harvey. My sister, Vanessa Lee, is going to be driving home on the 13th of September to help with the clean up and she is planning to take a truck and trailer full of donations to the shelters in the area.
This gofundme's goal is to pay for the trailer and as many supplies as we can fit into that trailer and the bed of a Ford f250 to bring down to Texas on the 13th of September.
We will be doing the costco trip on either the 9th of September or the 10th. We will be buying things like powdered milk, bread, cases of water, underwear, socks, baby formula, and other non-perishable foods. If you would like to donate these items please facebook message me.
Breakdown for costs:
$200 for trailer rental
$200 for gas for the truck to get the supplies to Texas
The rest is for buying supplies at costco
Buying extra gas to bring to rescuers and to power generators as needed
If we have any left over that money will go to the shelters and the clean-up crews that my sister will be volunteering with.
Our plan as far as where this money is going directly, my sister, Vanessa Lee, is set as the beneficiary since she will be the one making the drive to Texas.
We'll be posting pictures and updates everyday as we work together to help out as much as we can in this crisis.
