Fixxit Family Takes on Harvey!
$1000 in 10 days! We Can Do It!
Help Mrs. Fixxit help families impacted by Hurricane Harvey in The Texas Coast "Golden Triangle"
It's hard to remember, with the relentless stream of disasters that this horrible cycle began just 2 months ago. Attention has turned away from the Texas Coast, but families here are still struggling to put their lives back together.
On August 25th, Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas Gulf Coast as a category 4 storm. After spinning over Houston causing record floods, Harvey sauntered east and hovered over Texas' Golden Triangle -- made up of hard-hit Beaumont, Port Arthur and Orange.
With the help of Total Care and Golden Triangle Emergency Center , a crew from Mrs.Fixxit Home Repair will be working directly with families to get back into their homes. Your donations will be used to buy building materials and home goods for families most in need. The Fixxit Family volunteers will provide the labor.
In addition to monetary donations, gift cards from Home Depot, Lowes or Walmart will be greatly appreciated and given directly to families. More information on where to drop off cards is available on the Mrs.fixxit.com website or on our facebook page.
WE CAN DO IT!
I spoke tonight with one of the families of the four we will be working with next week; Older couple -he's retired, she works in emergency care. They had 7 Ft of water in their house during the storm & are living in the rooms upstairs with the entire downstairs gutted. No kitchen, half a bathroom & FEMA claim denied (they are in the process of refiling). Hoping we can get some insulation and sheetrock up. Maybe even hook up a kitchen sink! 1 Piece of sheetrock is $10.00!!!!! EVERY Dollar Helps!!! To everyone who has donated, thank you so much! More families stories coming soon!
