Shreveport native and Music Mountain provide aid to Harvey flood victims
Shreveport native and Music Mountain provide aid to Harvey flood victims.
A Shreveport native has teamed up with a local water company to help flood victims in southeast Texas.
"Yesterday we were met by people in just desperate need of drinking water and clean water," Sweeney said.
Sweeney said he and fellow church members had already taken several trips to areas hardest hit by flooding in southeast Texas when they heard of this water shortage.
He, along with others, took action.
The response from General Manager Dave Laun at Music Mountain Water Company in Shreveport was the best news Sweeney heard in a while.
We’ll help those in need for sure," Laun said.
Then Sweeney quickly delivered that water down south.
It turns out, this is not the first donation made by Music Mountain.
Music Mountain Water will also begin accepting donations at their water store, at the corner of Gilbert Drive and Stoner Avenue in Shreveport from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
