In August of 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas. The Category 4 hurricane devastated everything in its path, forcing approximately 30,000 people into temporary shelters.
Although it’s been two years since the storm, many people are still dealing with the aftermath. Fortunately, organizations like the Austin Disaster Relief Network are committed to helping those in need.
The Austin Disaster Relief Network is a non-profit comprised of over 185 Greater Austin Churches and thousands of volunteers. From fires to hurricanes, the Austin Disaster Relief Network is there. Little Guys Movers Austin has partnered with the organization for the past four years, and they recently had the opportunity to donate their time and manpower to deliver furniture to residents who lost everything and are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey.
“Anytime you get to work hand in hand with other volunteers to help someone in need, it’s a special moment,” says Branch Manager Ryan Adams. “The buzz of Hurricane Harvey has simmered within the news, but there are still people recovering from this natural disaster that are not fortunate enough to have the resources to bounce back as quickly as others.”
Little Guys Movers is proud to work with organizations like the Austin Disaster Relief Network. We aren’t just a business — we’re part of the community. Making a difference is part of the Little Guys ethos, and we’re honored to be able to do our part.
“It’s awesome to be part of something that brings joy to those in need,” says Adams. “It’s amazing how far a small act of kindness can go for someone.”
