Collection to help Texas town continues

Residents of Fallbrook are rallying in support of the little city of Rockport, Texas, in recovering from Hurricane Harvey’s visit.  Over 70 percent of the city was demolished and the rest of the city is hurting.

A group of people in Fallbrook has organized an effort to truck items to Rockport. Crop Production Services, at 1043 East Mission Road, has generously agreed to provide space for donated items from Oct. 2 until Nov. 2.

Gift cards for Home Depot, Petco, Shell, Walmart, or Lowes can be mailed directly to the Rockport Police Department at 714 Concho Street, Rockport, TX 78383 for distribution. Checks and cash are not accepted through this effort.

For the load we will be sending by truck, the most needed donations are tools for yard clean-up, home cleaning supplies, trash bags, over-the-counter pain medicine, work gloves, new underwear, socks, children’s toys, books, and games, non-perishable foods, pillows, detergent, pots and pans, and other practical items used in running a household.

This is an effort of our small town helping a small town in need.  We feel that if every healthy town will help another town that has suffered greatly it will make a big difference.

Thanks to Major Market’s help last Saturday we collected a generous amount of food items for Rockport and were able to get the word out about the continuing effort to help the recovery.

Thanks to the Village News for the continuing coverage of our effort! We are looking forward to a great response from our Fallbrook friends and neighbors. Thank you!
