Texas Strong - Opportunities to Help Our Neighbors After Hurricane Harvey



As we recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey in our neighborhoods, our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are also with everyone in Rockport, Houston, and our Gulf Coast Communities. As the water recedes, every day is a challenge and we remain Texas Strong.

We love our community and have put together a small list of efforts you can help with a focus on the Northern part of Greater Houston (Woodlands, Kingwood, Humble, Conroe, Montgomery, ect).

We've gotten HUNDREDS of people reaching out to sponsor EXACT family needs (not old, uncleaned donated items!) to replenish specific survivor family losses, and now we need your help to spread the word on who needs help the most! So far we've been able to replace new mattresses, new children's clothes, back to school items, a princess toddler bed, toiletries, and more! Please have families fill out the survivor form below with specific needs and an Amazon wishlist of their most immediate necessities so we can get them matched. Please share and repost! — https://sugarand.cl/harveyvictimform
