Rockport Recovery and Rescue Effort
Rockport Rescue and Recovery is a team of Austinites who have friends and family directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Our friends in Rockport, TX are in the process of rebuilding their lives and we intend to help them. We are in frequent contact with local coordinators and receive daily updates on various ways to help. The city and fire department are requesting specific items (generators, gas, chainsaws, building materials, tarps, food, etc) and as donations come in, this list changes.
Our goal is for the funds of this campaign to go directly towards purchasing the most updated list of supplies needed. Obtaining these goods and materials can prove challenging considering the limited resources in the Rockport area, thus our reason for purchasing items in Austin. Our team will head to Rockport this Sunday to deliver supplies, pending approval from local authorities. We will continue this process until the campaign funds have been exhausted.
Every donation matters and we encourage you to donate whatever you can. We truly cannot do this without your support.

We provided chainsaws, generators, food, tools, love and manpower. Not to mention some cash to get a back hoe to Rockport to help clear brush and downed trees. Your donations also helped a local family to buy a small generator and compact fridge to store insulin for a type 2 diabetic.
At $3,590 we exceeded our initial goal of $1,500 and had to raise it up.
The campaign will end this Friday, September 15th at 6:00pm CST.
All remaining funds are going to be withdrawn and presented in check or cash form to a few needy folks who have asked for help in Rockport.
Continued donations until Friday are very welcome and will go directly to someone who needs it now.
We are thinking about buying some tires for first responders who have been transporting people back and forth to health appointments - amazing people.
Thank you for all of the love - help us buy some tires!
This is truly amazing. We hope to purchase another generator and chain saw today with your support!
Thank you so much for your love and donations. Our friends and families in Rockport are amazed at all of the love so far.
I attached a picture of the generators and chainsaw your support has already provided.
We will continue to accept cash donations until further notice.
