Looking at the disaster Harvey started causing in Texas Saturday, the owner of McCoy’s Butcher Block felt he had to do something.
So, Brandon McCoy took to social media asking for packs of water as donations.
He and his staff went into their own pockets to round up enough food for about 1,500 meals.
With a trailer filled to the brim, he headed to Texas on Monday ready to feed as many Harvey victims as he could.
“There’s people on the floor everywhere,” said Brandon on the phone while in Cypress, Texas Tuesday morning. “There’s dogs everywhere. It’s just amazing how many people have stepped up and we’re just blessed. And we’re thankful that we can bless other people.”
“Of course, we’re sacrificing here at the store because we’re taking people from here and going there,” said Brandon’s brother Blake McCoy. “So, all the help’s appreciated.”
With the help of church members Tuesday morning, Brandon and his store manager fed almost 300 people breakfast at Copperfield Baptist Church in Cypress.
You can still help them give back by stopping by McCoy’s Butcher Block on Highway 171 in Stonewall, Louisiana.
They’ve also trailer set up where you can drop of donations located at 5505 Greenwood Rd. in Shreveport.
