Jupiter Locals For Texas
I’ve honestly been glued to the news with the horrible Harvey situation. I can’t even believe how many people have been affected! It’s truly heartbreaking. Us Floridians know the stress and fear that can come from hurricanes all to well. But, Harvey was a whole different beast. No one expected the enormity of it all.
I have been uplifted
by the amount of local folks that quickly sprang into action and started collecting items, raising money and some even headed to Texas! If you would like to help out in some way, here are a few ways to do so:
- Ship Much Needed Supplies Directly To Houston From Your Amazon Account: Hurricane Harvey Community Relief Effort
- Drop off non-perishable foods, diapers, underwear, baby food, clothing, batteries and any other helpful items to one of several local stores, now through the morning of Saturday, September 2th. Palm Beach Lately | Help For Houston
- There is also a huge need for pets of those affected by the storm. Austin Pets Alive | Hurricane Harvey is constantly updating their site with items they need.

Almost everyone in Jupiter, that I’ve spoken to this week, feels the same way about this horrible event. Many of you have friends and/or relatives living in the affected areas. Luckily my Aunt & Cousins are further north and were spared from the devastation. If there is anything I can do for you or your families, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’m happy to do what I can. ❤️ Nicole
