Helping with Hurricane Harvey Relief
Hurricane Harvey affected Texas in a multitude of ways including destroying homes, cities, families, and properties. It affected some of our franchise owners in the Houston and Beaumont area. Their homes, offices, and trucks were flooded. Even with the detriment that they bore, they were still able to help the community. Here are some of their stories:
The Shahan Family in Southwest Houston
The Southwest Houston location is owned by Ryan and Ashley Shahan. They experienced flooding in their area, so it was a good thing they had a boat! Ryan Shahan drove the boat around his community and helped pull people out of their homes that weren’t otherwise able to leave.
Trini Gonzalez in Beaumont
Trini is always a shining star when it comes to helping out the community. He had to evacuate his home but was still able to help 4 different families in one day. One of these families owned a competing moving company whose employees weren’t able to come in and help. Trini is also working with the Mayor to help aid in the cleanup efforts once the storm passes and the flooding subsides.

David and Barbara Betko, owners of the Central Houston location, have been helping out with rescues and volunteering at local Houston shelters. Once their local disposal facilities reopen, they’ll jump on the trucks and help with the cleanup (hopefully in the next day or so).
Stuff the Truck in Fort Worth
Our Fort Worth franchise partnered with Mouser Electronics to help aid in the Hurricane Harvey Relief. The truck is parked in Mouser Electronic’s parking lot and all employees are encouraged to donate items to families affected by the natural disaster. Once the truck is full, the H.U.N.K.S. will deliver it to families in need.
How The Whole Company Will Help
Through our partnership with Feeding Children Everywhere, we provide meals to children in need throughout the United States and rest of the world. We will now provide two nutritious meals to families affected by Hurricane Harvey. Each set of meals will be donated when any College Hunks location nation-wide performs a service (move or junk removal).
You can help with Hurricane Harvey relief, and together we can Move the World.
