Default Donated pallets of water to Houston area from DFW?

I have a builder (LBK Custom Homes) that purchased (15) pallets of water to donate for Hurricane Harvey relief aid. The order came in after we sent a truck down there with other relief aid items. In short, I need to get approx 30K# of water to the Houston area to folks that can use it. We really need it to go an organization that can distribute it correctly, we don't want it falling into wrong hands that would take advantage of the situation. Any suggestions as to who would most benefit from it and logistical help getting it to those folks would be great. Thanks

I would look around the surrounding area as well. I am NOT trying to talk bad about Houston, but other parts of the state could use the water as well.

If you can get it to houston, call a few local churches down there. Seems the churches have been better about helping than the government or any other entities.

Please call first before taking. Many places are actually over run with water and may be needing other things more.
Thanks

There's an abundance of bottled water in the greater Houston area. I'm betting that the greater Beaumont area is more in need.

Doesn't matter to me where it goes, as long as the Harvey victims that need it, get it.

you might send Rconn a message--he is in hamshire and they were hit HARD. He may know of a group in his area that could use and help distribute it

Pretty sure most folks are now in need of $$$$ so they can fix their homes. Has anyone see where folks can apply for help besides FEMA? I wonder where all those millions of dollars are? You might look at Refugo or Port Aransas area who took the brunt of the the storm.

This is so scary.
With so many homes not having flood insurance I'm scared to know what's going to happen with all these $300k+ homes that were flooded

Another TARP???

I think only the ones inside the d a m in east Katy and some down stream from the dam on buffalo bayou. These should have never been built there. But were is all those millions at and how do folks in need get some for them to rebuild?

I was just down in Refugio county Monday bringing a load of supplies and got to walk through the supply storage area in Tivoli. They were actually talking about renting a truck to haul water to Florida to get rid of it.
