Flooded Taxidermy Shop in Texas



My name is Amy Carter and I am from Olin, NC. I am asking for help for my good friends -- Al, Ty, Lori and Lynzi Weaver - They operate Ty's Taxidermy in Vidor, TX. I have worked with them on several occasions and was terribly saddened to hear that they have lost everything to the Hurricane Harvey flood!! Their taxidermy shop is currently under 5 feet of water. They have lost everything! The freezers have been out for days and they are not sure what, if anything, is salvagable in the freezers at this point. All of their taxidermy tools have been lost! There was no flood insurance on the shop building! Please help these folks get back on their feet!! These are personal friends of mine who have gone to great lengths to help me and my family out whenever they could. A very wholesome family who do not deserve to have to deal with this tragedy. Any amount will help!! All funds will go to the replacement of Al and Ty's taxidermy tools and to help rebuild the flooded shop. Access to the funds will be given directly to Al. Thank you for any help!
