10-25-2017: Your gifts make a difference!
10-20-2017: These are pictures of your donations being loaded on a truck ready to go to Texas. Thank you for providing us with the means to donate and transport these goods to give to those in need. We could not do this on our own. Thank you to NorthAmerican Van Lines for donating their truck and driver for this special run. A private donor gave the money for fuel so this was almost a totally free run.
We still have some supplies we would like to donate to Florida. The State of Florida and FEMA has asked us to help run a warehouse for victims of Hurricane Irma and Maria and they are also sending gifts to Puerto Rico.
They State of Texas has slowed down the distribution of goods and become more focused on long term recovery such as house repair and rebuilding. They are looking for professionals to help with future projects.
