Three young business owners from Phoenix, Arizona are on their way to Kingwood after they saw the destruction Hurricane Harvey left in its wake. These selfless young men rallied their community and collected donations of water, baby formula and diapers, clothing, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, you name it, and loaded up their company trailer with eyes set on Kingwood.
It has not been without its hardships, however. Overloaded with much-needed supplies for Kingwood residents, Deon Nikolic of Dejaveu Auto Werks, Stewart Meadows of Chi Town Dogzgz and Zach Stone have been faced with tire blowout after tire blowout on the long Texas highways. Most notably, while stranded in El Paso, Tx, with two blown out tires, a local news crew happened upon the young men. After hearing their story, they conducted an impromptu interview which was featured on a local El Paso news station. The men regrouped and persevered only to be met with more tire troubles in San Antonio, Tx.
With an ETA of midnight on Tuesday, a group of over 30 volunteers eagerly awaits the crew to help sort and distribute the supplies. Showcase Kingwood has been working with them as well as a small group here in Kingwood to ensure their needs are taken care of upon arrival and volunteers are at the ready.
Tired, hungry, and probably tire-less the men and their trailer will be at the Old HEB shopping plaza parking lot at 9 am on Wednesday to meet with volunteers. Showcase Kingwood asks that you come by and show your support, shake their hands, and help spread the word of new supplies in the area for those in need.
We are so grateful for all of the help that has poured in from across the country and are especially grateful to those who have taken their own time and resources to be "boots on the ground" to our beautiful community. Words cannot express our gratitude, it is nothing short of amazing. Thank you to everyone, everywhere, who has come to the aid of Kingwood and Texas in a most trying and heartbreaking time, we are forever grateful.
