In the wake of Hurricane Harvey the coast of Texas was put underwater and families are now looking to put the pieces back together. For many this will not happen overnight and some will take months even years to recover in the aftermath of Harvey. Watching the news and seeing the overwhelming destruction the immediate emotion is sympathy and empathy for the the victims. The response of the community, local businesses, emergency services, Coast Guard, and National Guard across the US has been amazing. There is still more to do however.
Gamerz 4 Vets is working to assist a fellow nonprofit group Operation Supply Drop. With the help of a San Antonio OSD member, Revolution Ink a local business in San Antonio, and a few donations from family and friends we were able to get a truck load of supplies to the right hands. The help doesn’t stop though!
We are asking the help of our community here of gamers to assist in the Hurricane Harvey relief effort. Although supplies are a great help in the recovery effort, fund raising and asking for money is just as necessary. This goes to filling the gas tanks of the vehicles making the deliveries and purchasing the items most needed.
Here is the link to make a donation to assist us. Gamerz 4 Vets is trying to reach a goal of $1,000. We have over 300 members in our group. I am personally asking that if you could donate at least $5, we will more than exceed this goal!
