Love is ACTION.
Love thy NEIGHBOR..
Love endures ALL THINGS...

In lieu of our annual September "Fish Fry For A Cause" John and I will be collecting goods for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We are putting forth our greatest effort EVER in our of showing love as "We Are The Hughes."

My name is Kenya Hughes and my husband John and I will be driving  to the Houston area to volunteer and donate items most needed to the survivors of Hurricane Harvey. It is our goal to fill a 15ft Uhaul with supplies from the Atlanta and surrounding areas. We have a true heart for people and helping others. I told my husband I wanted to do something for the people in Houston and he said  "like what?" I said "let's load a Uhaul." AND just like that we are headed to Houston. 

We will be leaving from Atlanta, GA on September 30, 2017 and will arrive in the Houston area on October 1st. We are partnering with my friend Landi of Landi and Co. to distribute the goods collected directly to a community in Houston.  Landi will let us know what area we will be setting up in the week of 9/24 as she wants to make sure she finds an area where we are needed the most.

This means when we arrive on Sunday we will be giving the goods directly to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. When we arrive we will be setting up in one of the hardest hit areas. We will be documenting this journey along the way from the collection of goods, the trip along the way, and the drop off to the recipients.

Once again we are partnering with a Houston based business Landi and Co. to facilitate this. She does a lot of volunteer work in the community and with other community leaders.

You donations will help purchase the below listed items to fill the truck as well as grocery store giftcards for families. 

Bottled Water
Socks
Underwear
Undershirts
Deodorant
Feminine Hygiene Products
Bibles
Toothpaste
Toothbrushes
Blankets

Please join us in our efforts in helping to touch the lives of some of those that need love the most right now. I have set up this page for anyone that wants to make a monetary donation to purchase any of the needed items or help with travel cost.
