Washburn University Baytown Relief Trip -- January 8-14
On August 25-29 Hurricane Harvey dropped four feet of rain on the Houston area. Baytown, TX, just east of Houston, has a population of just under 80,000. It was hit hard by the hurricane, with thousands of homes flooded and families displaced. At this point the mud and trash has been cleaned up and the job of rebuilding is taking place.
We have the opportunity to help rebuild! We are traveling down on January 8th and coming back on the 14th. Our job will be to help rebuild family homes. Specifically, we will be working on the first floor of these homes, putting in flooring, cabinets, trim, sheet rock, and painting, with possibly some outside work. Our contact and partner is Nick Woolery, Assistant City Manager. He is also a Washburn grad and helped organize relief trips while a student at Washburn. Here are some more details:
Housing: Provided by a local church (showers in the church)
Meals: Provided by Baytown (bring money for meals on the bus)
Transportation: Charter bus to Baytown. Local transportation provided by Baytown
Tools: Provided by Baytown
