Dinner With a Mission: Host a First Responders Packing Party to Help Hurricane Harvey Efforts!

Last night, 25 friends gathered in my home for dinner. This dinner had a mission. Over the last 24 hours, these amazing folks gathered hundreds of supplies for a “First Responders Packing Party.” First responders get limited sleep or breaks as rescue efforts take top priority. Phone calls from those in law enforcement were updating us about the supplies that were most in demand. Items were purchased, donated, sorted, counted and packed in waterproof plastic bags. Each bag contained: 

  • protein bars
  • dry socks
  • gum
  • jerky
  • talcum powder
  • undergarments
  • batteries
  • trail mix
  • granola bars
  • lip balm

We added notes of encouragement to our first responders, as they aid in disaster relief along the Texas coast. Make spaghetti, make a difference and host your packing party today!
