Help for Houston
As we all may know, Houston and the East Texas area are currently struggling through what has been considered to be the worst natural disaster in Texas history. Many victims are without shelter, clothing, and food. Although rescue efforts have been successful so far, people are still without shelter, food, and water, and they are in dire need of help.
As Americans, it is important to realize that the people of Houston are a part of our community on a national scale, and we must find some way to help them. Although we are too far away to go rescuing people in boats and helicopters, we have the opportunity to support the first responders and those who continue to provide disaster relief.
Because of this, we aim to support Texans helping Texans. Thousands of people across the state of Texas are flocking to the Houston area to help with disaster relief. It is striking to see all the people of Texas coming together in tough times. This is why we have decided to start collecting donations for Operation BBQ Relief, or OBR. OBR provides warm meals for emergency responders and displaced residents in times of disaster, as they are doing right now in the Houston area. Pitmasters, employees, and volunteers from BBQ joints across the state of Texas have traveled to Houston and are providing those affected by Hurricane Harvey with much needed food. To ensure they can continue to help these people, it is important they receive the funding and support they need.
We will be collecting monetary donations during all three lunches on Wednesday, September 6th and Friday, September 8th. Please consider donating to this great organization. Both OBR and the people in East Texas are depending on the help of their fellow Texans and Americans, and we must answer their call. Thank you, and may we keep the people affected by this disaster in our thoughts and prayers.
