Hurricane Harvey In Houston

Satisfactory Essays
Hurricane Harvey is the worst natural disaster Houston has ever face since Tropical Storm Allison and because of this many families' properties were damaged, leaving some without homes for the time being. As a result, to lessen the pressure on parents to get presents for their children on Christmas, we will be doing a Toy Drive for families affected by Harvey.
We, as a team, selected this project because of our experiences with Harvey. thankfully none of us were affected as bad to lose our homes, but we know that our fellow Houstonians have lost much more and need our help. We may not be able to do much, like donate money, but we can do our small part and lessen the pressure on these parents trying to start all over again.
