Owatonna Area Helping Texas
We have all seen the news coverage coming out of Texas lately, with Hurricane Harvey unleashing feet, yes you read that right, feet of rain, especially in the Houston area. There have been several stories on my Facebook feed about how people are banding together to help out those in need.
I know I was thinking what more can I do to help? There are different websites set up to take monetary donations, you can text different numbers to donate, as well as donating to the American Red Cross. There are so many different needs for those people who have been displaced by the storm, some people have lost everything. If you are looking for a way to send more than just a monetary donation, I may have the answer for you.
This has been shared numerous times on Facebook, and I wanted to get the word out here as well, I have copied the posting in its entirety for you:

PLEASE NO used clothing, this is something that is not needed as much as the other stuff.
ALSO- please try to bring all your stuff boxed! I will need as many cardboard boxes as possible for the little stuff to be filled and will need help assembling stuff if need be!
