Hurricane Harvey Boat Rescue Team

My name is James Stafdord. I live in Katy, TX. We have been severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey flooding. We have begged and borrowed every type of floating equipment we could find. I got the very last flatbottomed boat from Bass Pro. However, we can't afford the motor to power it and this leaves us walking the boat through the neighborhoods in chest high water. This is very slow and extremely exhausting.  We will use the funds primarily for the purchase of a new outboard motor and other equipment we need for the rescue operations.  Thank you for your help!
