A Rockport, Texas resident contacted our team requesting that we make the 8 hour drive to them. After listening to her story and researching Rockport’s damage (no electricity, infested with mosquitoes, a real bad need for almost everything), we decided that this was a mission we could not turn away.
We arrived in Rockport, Texas and set up at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church to hand out supplies and serve a home cooked meal to the masses. National guard members were also present to help hand out water and MREs to Hurricane Harvey victims.
THANK YOU to everyone who supported our efforts and helped raise over $12,700 to assist those in need. The residents of Rockport needed the hope that they are not alone on their rebuilding efforts.
In collaboration with Dancing Grounds our team had the privilege of passing out 400 backpacks, water bottles and pens to the fabulous students at Arise Academy in New Orleans. We had so much fun and decorating their bags with them!
So it is official, starting tomorrow morning and thru Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm we will be accepting donations in the parking lot of Central City BBQ. We ask that you pull to the rear of the parking lot. Our hosts, Aaron and Marc, will be open for lunch, so please stay enjoy some lunch, stick around just to hang out.
We had a wonderful morning at the Salvation Army of Greater New Orleans with WVUE FOX 8 News. We donated a lot of school supplies to kick off Back-to-School! We love to give back to the community and proud to be a part of this great event.
