Opportunities to give in the wake of Harvey
In the midst of all the destruction Hurricane Harvey has brought to the Gulf Coast, Texans have demonstrated their care and
compassion towards one another, flocking to the affected areas to provide whatever aid is possible.

Some, like our own Hayden Schaefer, headed to the flooded areas with their personal boats to assist in rescuing those stranded by the high waters. Others, like Dr. Kelley Moon, provided their time and much-needed medical services to care for those most affected by the storm.

Here at home, we can all contribute by donating much needed supplies to our fellow Texans. If you have something you would like to donate to help the flood victims, Drewery Construction and Tree Service will be taking a truck of supplies to a church in Huffman each day at 6 pm. We will collect items in Human Resources and the Bright Café and will deliver them Thursday afternoons for the next couple of weeks.
