GSA Advantage


Thanks to you, Projé and We Save Lives Foundation partnered with various companies and non-profits to bring relief to Houston after the horrific flooding and damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. Your donations helped bring a 16-foot enclosed trailer full of supplies to a relief center in downtown Houston. The amount of people in need of supplies has caused the lines at the relief center to wrap around the building every day for more than two weeks. Our volunteers have cleaned and gutted houses to help the people of Houston start to rebuild their lives. Many of us are still volunteering. Recovery in Houston will continue for several months. Keep Texas in your thoughts and prayers.


THANK YOU for donating and serving your community!
