This is just a smattering of what is and has been going on. Right now we have at least 7 people active on the ground in South Texas. We have people currently north of Houston and all the way over to the west in the Aransas Pass area just east of Corpus Christi.
We have been directly helping people on the side of the road, supplying clothing, food, water, hygiene products, etc. to shelters and our people are now hooking up with work crews to provide labor to clean up debris and more.
Right now we have one group that will be arriving at my place tonight to rest before heading south in the morning, that group alone is made up of 6 more responders. A friend of mine right now has gone out and worked with others to fill a trailer with supplies, he is bringing it to my place today, and the team of six will be taking it south with them.
CAC is doing exactly what I envisioned, totally unconstrained by bureaucracy we are able to adapt to the situation and make best use of opportunities as they present themselves. Here is one example.
A gentleman named Chris was one of our first responders to come down, he stayed at my house for two nights. The first day he and two others drove south an actually had a hard time finding people in need of aid. They made a decision to relocate further south the next day to another safe house.
During that first day though they did locate a church which was in need of clothing for evacuees. They had a pretty specific list of stuff they were in most need of. That same day on NextDoor.com I located a neighbor that said she had a 10×10 filled floor to ceiling with clothes. I connected Chris to her, she got the list and started pulling stuff aside based on it.
The next morning Chris and the other two gentlemen rolled out with two vehicles stuffed to gills with this clothing. So yes we are using our funding to buy food, hygiene, water, etc as needed but we are also using our man power to find any resource and any need, match them up and put them together.
With this I ask you to please if you have not done so consider donating to CAC Team today. I don’t know of any other group that is putting 99% of all donated funds DIRECTLY into supplies for those who need them. Our staff takes no salary and the only costs we cover for our field responders is gasoline.
