As a Texas-based organization, we have watched as nature took its toll in our own backyard. Hurricane Harvey has inflicted mass flooding and devastation along the coast of our state, leaving thousands displaced. Many have been left with only the clothes on their back. As such, today we announce our expansion to Texas. With the help of people like you, we hope to continue providing dignity through hygiene to our own state, which will be recovering from this disaster for some time.
