The Martinsville Police Department wants to spread the word that it is serving as this area’s collection point for water donations for Texas.
Harvey made landfall Friday as a Category 4 hurricane before weakening to a tropical storm and setting a preliminary continental U.S. rainfall record.
He added: “We all have seen on the news the horrible damage that has occurred in southeast Texas.
Their recovery will be long and difficult.
Some of our officers sought what they could do to help.
So we contacted God’s Pit Crew and arranged to bring them the bottled water we collect for them to deliver to the areas that need it the most.” “Generally speaking a case of bottled water is cheap and readily available in our area but to the people of Southeast Texas over the next several weeks that bottle water is priceless and can be a lifesaver.
So we will be accepting donations of bottled water at the police department,” Fincher said.
Donors may bring bottled water to the Martinsville Police Department Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and every little bit helps, Fincher said.
“We are fortunate to live in a very caring community and we hope to show that to the people of Southeast Texas.” The Associated Press reported Tuesday that that four deaths had been confirmed in Texas, but unconfirmed reports of others missing or presumed dead were growing.
