Just two weeks ago Texas was devastated by hurricane Harvey. Our team decided to help out, and we announced a clothing drive.
Donations started showing up within a half hour of our initial announcement. We started filling meeting rooms and later had to move to the convention center, as the Augusta community came out in full force.
Through emails and social media, the team got the word out, and it is almost overwhelming the donations from so many Augustans. Friday a semi-trailer truck took off for Texas with an enormous amount of clothing, bottled water, diapers and other supplies.
Thank you to all who participated. It was terrific to see the Augusta community spirit in full force.
