A Friend in need is a friend indeed

This stand up guy was one of the many who suffered from the Harvey hurricane that devasted thousands in Houston. After recently learning that him, his wife (Dawn Bell),his youngest daughter, and middle son (sorry steve...i dont remember their names ) are sleeping on air mattresses and his eldest daughter, who was luckily in NY with family during Harvey helping her grandad though physical ailments, cant come home due to Harvey taking everything from them.
After exhausting all of his immediate funds and taking loans just to get a rental house and some basic necessities for his family he is still in need of help with rebuilding his life.
While he may have lost momentos of the past, I hope to build new memories now by showing him the continued compassion of our Houston community so he can at least still provide the base necessities to his wife and kids.
Looking at anything that can be donated, cash or items. Things like mattresses, clothing for a girl or boy in middle school or a girl in high school, shoes for a grown man and woman, under garements, socks, house-hold goods and supplies, food, anything would be of benefit and much appreciated!
Im a friend and colleague of Steve and will be giving all proceeds directly to him hopefully with in 2 weeks of time so he can get back on his feet as quickly as possible with as much help as myself, some other terrific friends he's made, and any compassion shared to him by strangers empathetic to this cause.
