The last month has been devastating for many people outside of our home area.
It started with Hurricane Harvey’s arrival on August 26. Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to impact the United States since 2005. Over the course of four days, the storm released over 40 inches of rainfall and caused catastrophic flooding in Houston and the surrounding area. Since then, we have witnessed the devastation wrought by two other hurricanes (Irma and Maria) and two massive earthquakes in Mexico. The sad truth is that the effects of these natural disasters will last for months, if not years.
“When I was a boy, and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” – Fred Rogers
It’s wonderful to see Americans coming together to help the victims of these natural disasters. Every day, the devastated regions are receiving an influx of laborers, food, water, and supplies. And even though the influx will not last forever, it will make an everlasting difference in the lives of residents today.
We here at Weed Xtinguishers just wanted to take a moment to ask you to consider helping in some way. Whether it be by a donation or volunteering, your act of kindness will place a smile on someone’s face.
One of the organizations we recommend partnering with is the Children’s Hunger Fund. Founded in 1991, this non-profit organization has been delivering food and hope to children and families in need. In the wake of the current crisis, they have stepped up their deliveries to include ready-to-eat foods, hygiene items, new bedding, batteries, and baby products (diapers, powder, etc.). If you can help with any of these items or a donation (for them to purchase these products), please visit their website at www.childrenshungerfund.org or call them at 972-850-5607.
Thank you for giving your time and/or resources to help the victims of the recent natural disasters. Together, we can bring hope, dignity, and supplies to people hundreds of miles away.
