Hurricane evacuees turn to Fort Stockton for help


In the wake of Hurricane Harvey's Houston flooding, the Villalon family traveled to Fort Stockton as their neighborhood was submerged by water. Local residents David and RoseMary Portillo have opened their home to the Villalon family, who had to make the painful decision of leaving everything behind.

The Villalon family, along with pregnant friend of the family Cecilia Solis, is in need of sundries, clothes, dog food, and more. 

If you would like to make any kind of donation, please call (432) 386-7254. The Villalon family would appreciate the help as they rebuild their post-hurricane life.
