On Friday, Sept 1, R.A.W. held a drive in Palm Desert, CA to collect items for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. A 26 ft truck was rented and before it was done, enough donations to fill 4 trucks were received. R.A.W.'s truck was filled within two hours. Fortunately the Marriott Hotel stepped up to receive the additional and will, jointly with other Coachella Valley Hotels, organize trucks to Texas.
R.A.W. is headed to San Antonio where R.A.W. wounded veteran Bob Ehrig will follow R.A.W.'s truck in their own truck of donations into Houston. Bob has arranged for local wounded veterans to meet the truck to help unload once it arrives.
Truck is being driven by Ron Fairly, a member of R.A.W.'s Board of Directors and accompanied by Maggie Lockridge, R.A.W.'s Founder. The United Way of Texas is arranging a destination according to each relief center's needs.
