Chris Morrissey donates nearly 8,000 bottles of water to Hurricane Harvey relief
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Sept. 15, 2017 – PRLog — Proforma Big Dog Branding, a local marketing and branding company, has donated 7,848 bottles of water to Houston after Hurricane Harvey devastated the area. Chris Morrissey, owner of Proforma Big Dog Branding, worked with the charity Serve 6.8 in an effort to deliver the water. Serve 6.8 has been collecting donations of all kinds to deliver.
Several months ago, Proforma Big Dog Branding, as a promotional products distributor, ordered custom branded water bottles to help raise money for a veteran charity event that had eventually fallen through, leaving Morrissey with thousands of water bottles in his garage.
“My wife and I had been looking for the right opportunity to get rid of the water,” said Morrissey. “When we realize the devastation Hurricane Harvey was leaving in its path, we knew this was the right cause and we wanted to help.”
Morrissey partnered with Serve 6.8 to deliver the water, along with thousands of other donated items, to the affected areas. However, by the time the water was transported to Serve 6.8’s headquarters, the company had run out of trucks to deliver the donated items to where they are needed most.
“Right now all of Serve 6.8’s trucks are in Houston delivering items and aiding in the relief efforts. Without a means of transportation, we are unable to take the palettes of donated items we have here in Fort Collins to the affected areas,” said Morrissey.
If you or someone you know has a truck that can be used to load pallets of water, clothing, diapers and other life-saving resources, please visit www.Serve68.org to learn umn how you can help.
