Flood Relief in Houston
We arrived in Houston while they were going through some major floods due to an extensive amount of rain. One of our great friends Sarah let us know about relief efforts in her area so we decided to help.
It was amazing to see the efforts that were made to help the victims of floods. Many groups in the area put a call out for non perishable food, toiletries, and clothing donations and they collected them. One of the local high schools ,Spring High, put out a call letting everyone know that they would take the donations and set up an area in the gym to allow flood victims to come and get food and clothes. People started delivering stuff by truckloads. One of spring highs coaches, Coach Richard, made sure that everything ran smoothly.
The food we unloaded went into the gymnasium and was sorted to make it easy for people to get what they needed.
The clothes were taken to a classroom where they were sorted as well.
There were so many people there helping. I was so impressed and touched by the donations and the hard work that was put in to help others. Spring High was very generous in donating their facilities and it was inspiring to see so much service.
