Non-profit donates goods to flood victims in Reynosa, Mexico

News

PHARR, Texas (KVEO) — After taking a hit from Hurricane Hanna, a local non-profit is looking out for our neighbors in Mexico who need help.

“What we are doing right now is collecting as many food, cleaning supplies, medicines, whatever we can get because thousands of people lost everything they had,” said Edgar Zamorano, who is leading the donation drive in Pharr.

Each box was loaded with goods to be distributed to our neighbors in Reynosa, Mexico.

“Reynosa is always flooded whenever this happens there’s always people that need help,” Zamorano said.

It is an area in the Mexican State of Tamaulipas that continues to deal with the aftermath.

“Right now, there are houses that are completely flooded, the water’s touching the ceiling. We need boats to actually reach people,” Zamorano added.

Zamorano said a total of three loaded trucks have been sent.

While the Rio Grande Valley recovers, helping those who lost it all is what being a good neighbor is all about.

“They’re taking it over to all the houses and communities that need it,” Zamorano said.

For those interested in donating you still have time. Donations are being accepted at 9509 South Jackson in Pharr from now until Tuesday.
