BlueKey Helps Hurricane Harvey Victims

You've likely heard the saying "Everything's bigger in Texas," and August Hurricane Harvey was no exception. In a four-day period, areas received more than 40 inches of rain, with peak accumulations reaching nearly 65 inches. 

 

As a result of all the rain, parts of Texas experienced catastrophic flooding, and Hurricane Harvey would go down as the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the United States.

 

In a relief effort organized by David Lewgood, the President of San Antonio-based company BlueKey Restoration, BlueKey employees and representatives rallied together to support friends, family, and the communities hit hardest by the hurricane in their time of need.

 

A trailer filled with pallets of essentials such as water, non-perishable food items, baby wipes, and toys were dispersed to victims in the Rockport and surrounding areas.

 

"Once the roads cleared, and access was allowed, we loaded up and headed out to the battered areas, but didn’t even get close to the coast before we found a severely impacted community - and everything was gone pretty quickly," said Lewgood.

One of the company's highlights, as told by Lydia Whitner, was getting the children to pitch into the relief effort.  Staff told them that if they helped unload the supplies, we would give them a toy - a frisbee, ball, or the like.  Fortunately, BlueKey had brought toys in abundance, and "it made our day," said Whitner. "All of the kids received something."
