This past May several weeks of severe rain caused major damage in Texas, sadly affecting over 8,000 homes and thousands of residents. Seeking to assist in a situation so close to our Home Office, Distribution Center and several of our stores, we called upon our ever-generous vendors, IrisUSA and Keep Cool. They kindly offered more than 1000 pieces of product including waterproof totes, containers and reusable shopping totes to protect victims’ existing belongings from further damage. Charles Thomas drove our What We Stand For truck full of the donated items and delivered them to the Barnabas Connection in Wimberley, Texas and to the Jewish Family Services in Houston— two areas heavily-affected, with many homes destroyed.
We want to express our sincere gratitude to our vendor partners and others involved for their contribution. Their ongoing support of us and our communities are one of the many examples of working together to ensure everyone associated with our business thrives.
