I will be taking what I collect from Performance, Pittsboro Outdoor Power Equipment, Robyn's Nest and where I work at UNC Hospital to Galot Motorsports Park next weekend.  From there, the items will be loaded into the semi and transported by KF Trucking owner, Kenny Farrell to Dickinson, Texas.  The plan is for the items to be delivered to local churches. He will be posting pictures along the way and of the items being unloaded. I will be sharing those photos also.

Another item they will need to clean up after Harvey is N95 dust masks

Mold will be all over the flooded houses and it will only get worse after the flood waters recedes.  Working with the masks is a pain but working without the masks inside moldy houses is worse.  Just looking into houses for victims after Floyd had me coughing up multi colored goo for a few days after leaving the flooded areas.   :o :(

When I went back Down East to help clean up I took a case of N95 masks for us to use and to leave Down East for the survivors and other helpers.

Later,
