While everyone was running around trying to figure out their next step in fixing their homes, cleaning or even moving, our very own SSG Blackmon and wife Tammy, began their mission - Operation Fill My Trailer! The Blackmon's, along with family and friends from all over joined forces and filled not only Phillips entire truck but also a 14ft trailer with supplies! Phillip and Tammy then made a one day, "turn and burn" - as Phillip called it, to deliver the load to our community. Not to mention that on their Sunday delivery they were in fact celebrating their anniversary! It is in times like these that we are reassured that we have, in fact, chosen the perfect recipient to receive their dream home and join the Southeast Texas community.
Yes, Hurricane Harvey has delayed our expected reveal date; however, this storm did not stop nor cancel our mission! Rob Glassey has already been back at it with big equipment cleaning up and finishing the prep work! We are expecting material delays due to the storm and increased demand as well as a delay of donated labor. Our committee is still going strong preparing for our next fundraiser on November 1st at Madison's.
Thank you to all the donors and contributors who have stepped up to help us make this dream a reality!
