If there's one upside to a natural disaster like Hurricane Harvey, it's a reminder that when people need help, this country is always willing to lend a helping hand.
The storm's impact on the Texas coast has been devastating, and the estimated cleanup costs have already hit the billions. That has spurred several organizations to reach deep into their pockets and help out.
The Pearl Mae Foundation, along with the MCCI Medical Group, is hosting a Hurricane Harvey relief event in Rockport, Texas.
The faith-based charity with partners, MCCI Medical Group and Advinity, are coming together to help the local community. They will be handing out gift cards to families and passing out food.
"We are doing this to be a part of the community and give back to the community. We care about it, and feel it is our duty to be a part of the restoration. If all businesses in the community come together and work, we would rebuild ourselves faster, better, and stronger," said Dr. Vishnu Reddy.
The Pearl Mae Foundation, a faith-based charity, was founded with the mission of creating a community of support by being of service to others. In line with this mission, the Foundation sincerely wishes to help support Aransas County citizens as they rebuild their homes and lives.
With donations to the Pearl Mae Foundation's Hurricane Relief Fund from MCCI Medical Group, Advinity and private donors, the Foundation will provide financial support to local residents whose homes suffered significant damage from Hurricane Harvey and who are in need of financial assistance not otherwise being met.
The Pearl Mae Foundation's Hurricane Harvey Relief Event in Rockport, Texas, will be open to the public. While there, residents will have the opportunity to apply for financial grants.
Applications will be also be accepted online, directly through the Pearl Mae Foundation website. Funds will be distributed at and after the event.
Lunch will be provided. There will also be entertainment and appearances from local community leaders.
