The Story

The Salinas family home was found chest deep in water from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.  The entire family plus their two large dogs ( 2 Bernese Mountain Dogs ) had to be rescued by boat from their home during the evacuation from the devastating flooding that followed the hurricane.  Mom, Heather, Dad, Chris,  and their 4 young children ages 10, 9, 4 & 3 plus their 2 large dogs were all affected.  The family ( along with their furry family members ) are currently displaced & left only with their birth certificates & social security cards.  Their town of Friendswood, Texas was NOT under mandatory evacuation orders & were advised only to limit travel!  If you would like to help a family directly rather than just through disaster relief organizations please donate here.  This family does NOT have flood insurance.

Well, it's been WEEKS now and the Salinas family is still displaced. Their house sits empty with walls torn out & their belongings still on the side of the road.  They are SO VERY GRATEFUL for all of your generous donations!!!  Posting pictures of what the house looks like today.

As "operation rebuild" is taking place the family is overwhelmed  with gratitude for all your support.  We have even had a friend  from GMC offer her discount to help the family purchase new vehicles. We have had strangers drive to Heather's mom's house to deliver treats, leashes & food for the 2 large Bernese Mountain Dogs who have been separated from the family.   We have had people donate clothes for the 4 young children who lost everything.  Now we just need your help to donate to the Salinas family so they can actually PURCHASE new vehicles, and dry-wall to rebuild their house.  To purchase food while they are unable to work! Thank you so much! You all are awesome!!!!
