RHINOS FOR RELIEF

HURRICANE HARVEY

Durr is mobilizing our RHINOS FOR RELIEF initiative to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. We are in the process of finalizing our plans to convoy a team of volunteers to the Houston area this weekend or early next week.  The timeframe of our efforts will be contingent on logistical planning.


THE PLAN

As we've done in response to other disaster and emergency situations, RHINOS FOR RELIEF will provide hot meals and water to those directly affected by Hurricane Harvey and to the first responders who are working hard to support them. We will also be distributing whatever donated items we can muster.


HOW YOU CAN HELP

DONATIONS:

      o   Supplies - see list of most-needed supplies below*

      o    Canned goods and Non-perishable dry goods

      o   Monetary – funds raised will go towards the purchase of the most-needed supplies. Visit our GoFundMe campaign page here.
