Lone Star son and Texas native, Casey Donahew, is using his live show as a means to help assist in relief to victims of Hurricane Harvey. Labeled as one of our nation’s worst disasters and the most significant storm to ever hit the U.S .coast, Hurricane Harvey has left a wake of destruction in its historically large path.
Donahew and his wife Melinda sprang into action this week upon seeing the first video and hearing news reports of the damage caused by the storm knowing that they had to do something to help. Hear Casey’s own words here.
“Texans are proud people, and we help our own, but we are not too proud to ask others for help when we need it. That’s why I’m asking my fans and anyone else who wants to donate to please do so. We have a large cargo trailer that we are pulling to our shows this week and we are asking people to help us fill it up with items like; diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, body soaps, deodorant, and hygiene packs. These are suggestions, we are not going to turn away anything non-perishable that anyone wants to donate,” says Donahew.
Casey will be collecting at his shows this week in the following markets:
August 30 – Dallas, TX – The Rustic (The Rustic is also giving a $10 ticket discount for anyone who donates at least 2 items)August 31 – Clinton, AR – National Championship Chuck Wagon Races
September 1 – Lubbock, TX – Charley B’s
September 2 – Belton, TX – Central Texas State Fair
