Wheelhouse helps during Harvey
The Wheelhouse followed in the tradition of helping others this month by helping those in the Deer Park and Pasadena communities clean up after the flooding created by Harvey. Not only that, they managed to rescue our Operations Chair Randy Saylors from the storm.
Over 30 Wheelhouse clients helped clean up 20 plus houses in the Deer Park and Pasadena area and several continue to do so as of the writing of this newsletter.
The storm also included a heroic effort to save long time Wheelhouse board member Randy Saylors and family from the flood waters. Randy and his new wife along with his 94 year old Mother in Law had resorted to staying in his truck with the high waters when to his surprise the Wheelhouse manager showed up on a kayak to save them one by one and then they utilize a jeep from a former Wheelhouse alumni to get through the high water back to safety. Congrats to all the guys for their selfless service during our community's time of need!
