Hurricane Harvey Texas Relief Fund
Hurricane Harvey’s catastrophic flooding caused widespread damage to Gordon Hatthorn’s home. Gordon is a Desert Storm Veteran that has been a local postman for over 20 yrs. Although his family home was ravaged by Hurricane Harvey, he still has his job. But Gordon did not have flood insurance because he lives outside the 500 year flood plain, he thought he was safe because his house had never flooded before. Being a lower middle class income family, Gordon doesn’t have $55,000 saved for emergencies like this.
Gordon and his family have no choice but to live in their hurricane tattered home where their cats and dogs run through the open walls going from room to room. There is no privacy.
In November, we replaced the Hatthorn’s appliances.
Since January, we have replaced all the sheetrock, taped, floated, textured, primed and painted throughout the whole house. We hired an electrician to replace the 100 amp panel to a 200 amp panel with an outside disconnect to bring the house back up to code. The house passed it’s inspection and it is now ready for the rest of the repairs.
We need your help in order to finish the restoration of the kitchen/bathroom cabinets and flooring, which will complete the Hatthorn’s home repairs and give them back their normal lives.
