City of Houston “Paying It Forward” Volunteers Deliver Hurricane Laura Supplies
HOUSTON – Help was sent for some East Texas residents who are working to rebuild their communities after the devastation caused by Hurricane Laura. Volunteers spent last Friday collecting and packaging supplies that Houstonians have generously donated to the Paying it Forward Hurricane Laura relief effort.
Saturday morning, A-Rocket Moving and Storage drivers left Houston and headed east to deliver more than two truck loads of diapers, nonperishable food, cleaning materials, bottled water, pet food and other supplies.
The trucks arrived by 8 a.m. and staged at the West OrangeStark Middle School, located at 1402 Green Ave., Orange, TX 77630.
“I am proud that Houstonians have opened their hearts and wallets to help our neighbors recover from Hurricane Laura,” said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. “Our city will never forget the help that poured into Houston after Hurricane Harvey. We will continue to pay forward the volunteerism and generosity with every chance we get.”
