It’s been nearly two years since Hurricane Harvey wreaked destruction on the Katy area. People may think Katy has fully recovered, but if they look around they will see families still working to get their lives back – up to 2,000 of them. You don’t need to know how to hammer nails or paint walls to help a Harvey survivor.
Why not buy a cup of coffee for a home owner who has been struggling to make his house a home again and listen to his story. Or, volunteer to baby-sit kids while their stressed-out parents make room in their calendars for an overdue date night. Can you update a website or organize tools for volunteer crews that will be working in the field to restore hurricane-damaged houses?
You could even donate funds or a weekend of your time to the nonprofit, Katy Responds, as it continues work started one year ago to help those impacted in the Katy area by Hurricane Harvey.
These are just a few suggestions from Tom Pretti Jr., chief executive officer/co-founder of Katy Responds.
