As the flood water recedes, the real work begins. The Houston school district serves approximately 215,000 students and is still working to assess the damage.

The drive is collecting school supplies, backpacks, and all-sizes of socks and underwear for adults and children. Cosmetic and Reconstructive surgeon and HPCS founder Dr. Sean Boutros explains, "The need now is very specific, so our efforts to help are just as focused."

Members of the Gallery Furniture team will distribute the donations to deserving Houston families; 1000 of which are still being cared for and served in its Houston stores that have become ad-hoc shelters. Regarding the recent outpouring of donations from the community, Houston philanthropist and Gallery Furniture business owner James "Mattress Mack" McIngvale said "It reaffirms your faith in mankind when you see people coming in and giving up what they don’t need. There’s an incredible outpouring of support. It’s just tremendous.”

Global skincare company ZO Skin Health by Dr. Zein Obagi Regional Sales Director Jackie Castaneda, through her personal efforts with a quick and effective GoFundMe campaign, and supported by matching donations of her employer ZO Skin Health, together have raised over $15,000 to help four Houston families who lost everything in the recent floods.
