Relief for Texas Flood Victims

$1,880 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 47 months
As Texas inspired Restaurants in NYC, we have watched from a long distance the devastation of homes and families throughout Texas from the Memorial Day Floods. We may be physically far but we feel a strong pull to do something to help out in the best way we can and you can join us!  

Here's how you can help: For every donation above $50, a Taste of Texas Passport will be issued. Valued at over $100 , this passport gets you a dish at each of the participating restaurants as a thank you for your support of our friends in Texas.

The Passports will be issued to arrive at your address no later than July 1st, 2015. 

All of the proceeds will be going to the United Way of Central Texas and the Hays County Food Bank. 

Restaurants participating so far: 
Brooklyn Kolache Co. - 3 Kolaches
Delaney BBQ - Texas Hot Link Sausage
BeeHive Oven - Fried Green Tomatoes
Dram Shop - Frito Pie or Cheeseburger w/Fries
Javelina - The Bob Armstrong dip
Guero's Brooklyn - 2 Tacos
Juiceland Brooklyn - 14oz

We will be sending out the passports tomorrow, July 2, 2015 and you should be receiving them by July 6th or 7th and can start redeeming them at the participating restaurants then.

Wow! We are just a few days in and the response has been wonderful! Thank you all for contributing and sharing. I have spoken with Michelle Harper at United Way of Hays County.

The hill county of Texas is beginning the long road to recovery and Michelle wanted everyone to know that the support that NYC folks have shared is so helpful.
She also said to me that many folks said that it was such a boost to know that folks in NYC are sharing the clean up with them. In times like this, We are all #TexasKind
