Plastic Tubs Needed in Rockport/Port A

As folks continue to clean up in Rockport/PortA/Aransas Pass areas, they have need for large plastic storage tubs with lids. They need these to keep dry and clean what they have salvaged as they continue demolition of ther homes and property. 


I will be going back down to assist with more demolition and tree/brush removal the weekend of Sept. 23th. If you have any tubs with lids you would like to donate, please let me know or bring them to my office MBH 304 or Kelly Lessard's office on the first floor. Also, any gloves (plastic and cloth) would be greatly appreciated, as will cat litter and/or cat food (wet and dry).


Thanks to everyone who has donated tubs and cleaning materials so far. I was supposed to go this past weekend, but had to reschedule to Sept. 23. 


Email me if you have questions. Thanks! #texanshelpingtexans
