Operation BBQ Relief is ready to roll and they need your help. Hurricane Harvey made landfall very early Saturday morning just east of Corpus Christi as a Category 4 Hurricane. The last Category 4 to make landfall in the US was in 2004 and the first Category 4 in Texas since 1961. Over the next several days the flooding could be devastating as Harvey is already stalling and areas could received up to 30 inches of rain.
OBR Teams from Memphis, Kansas City, Shreveport, and Austin will be loading supplies and preparing trailers to respond to the needs created from Harvey. They will be leaving these locations on Sunday heading to Texas and staging near Austin until they have a location and it is safe for their teams to proceed. They are prepared to serve 10,000+ hot bbq meals a day.
Here are 3 things they need:
1 – Donations both monetary as well as product. Here is a small list of products they will need once they get into location:
- Protein (Pork butt, pork loin, turkey, etc.)
- Bread (buns and loaves)
- #10 cans of corn and green beans
2 – Volunteers once it is safe for an extended period 7-14 days. They need volunteers to register on their website or download their new OBR Volunteer App that can be downloaded for iPhone from iTunes and Android from Google Play. Click Here for the Volunteer App
