They are hand-delivering food, pet supplies and basic hygiene products to several shelters and churches across the Houston area. Supply kits containing baby wipes, feminine hygiene products and fresh water are being distributed in several locations, while fresh meals and packed lunches are being provided to families forced to leave their homes because of the storm.Embracing the World Silent Auction
