Hurricane Harvey Assistance
On Friday, Sept 1, RAW held a drive in Palm Desert, CA to collect items for the victims of Harvey. A 26 ft truck was rented and before it was done enough donations to fill 4 trucks were received. RAW's truck was filled within two hours. Fortunately the Marriott Hotel stepped up to receive the additional and will, jointly with other Coachella Valley Hotels, organize trucks to TX.
RAW is headed to San Antonio where RAW wounded veteran Bob Ehrig will follow RAW's truck in their own truck of donations into Houston. Bob has arranged for local wounded veterans to meet the truck to help unload once it arrives. Truck is being driven by Ron Fairly, a member of RAW's Bd. of Directors and accompanied by Maggie Lockridge, RAW's Founder. The United Way of Tx is arranging a destination according to each relief center's needs.
