NC to South Texas - Harvey Relief

Hi, my name is Paige Dockens. My husband, Josh Dockens, and I are from Corpus Christi, Texas and now live in Denver, NC (moved here in 2007). As you all know Texas was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, which has directly effected many of our friends and family. With all of the media covering the horrific Houston flooding, supplies and items have not been sent as rapidly to South Texas where the hurricane hit directly. Josh and I feel compelled to help as much as we can from afar. Josh and two of his co-workers are driving a large trailer (pictured) down to Texas next Friday, September 8th. We are hoping to have this trailer packed to the roof with supplies! Aransas County schools has been closed indefinitely due to damage from the hurricane.  Because of this, children from these areas will be going to neighboring schools until further notice.  I have many teacher friends that will be fortunate enough to have these students in their classes. Along with supplies needed for cleanup other things are needed for the families directly effected. This GoFundMe page is for anyone that is wanting to  help and cannot get to one of our designated dropoff locations. The funds will be used to purchase items we did not receive and all other funds will be used to purchase gift cards to give to the families. I will post pictures of all receipts of items and gift cards purchased with the donations as well as updates and pictures as they make their journey to Texas. ALL DONATIONS WILL BE GOING DIRECTLY TO RELIEF EFFORTS FOR HURRICANE HARVEY VICTIMS. Thank you so much for all of your help rebuilding Texas! #TexasStrong
