Tornado Relief Efforts – The More Cabbage Disaster Clean Up Crew
We don’t always know when a disaster will strike. Last week the DFW area was plagued with 16-18 tornados. Thousands of homes were hit, destroying and damaging homes and businesses, which left people without necessities and greatly in need of help.
This is when a community pulls together to support those in need.
Images of families suffering, and in need kept flashing across my mind as I drove to work. I needed to do something. I was almost at the office when I texted my boss and requested we spend the day doing anything we could to give back.
Lucky for me, he completely understood. Chris had been out the day before chopping up fallen trees and cleaning up where he could. His supplies were already packed in his vehicle.
I texted everyone to be prepared and dressed for hard work when they arrived. Of course the girls (including myself) whereas not dressed for disaster clean up. We all changed into More Cabbage t-shirts we had at the office.
After making a quick Walmart trip to get the remaining supplies (including sweet sparkly tennis shoes for us girls), we were off – a Tornado Disaster Clean Up Crew.
The five of us didn’t make a huge impact, but we gave it our best. We were able to reach a few houses where we gladly helped clean up debris, saw down fallen trees, and even helped save this little guy, now named T-Bone.
Honestly, after everything that happened in DFW, we are thankful to have the opportunity to give back when we are needed.
