RHINOS FOR RELIEF
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.
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

o Canned goods and Non-perishable dry goods
