Councilmember Brossett partners with law firm, trucking company to help Houston flood victims
Councilmember Jared Brossett is partnering with Adams and Reese Law Firm and Transportation Consultants Inc. to send critical goods and donations to Texas residents recovering from Hurricane Harvey’s landfall.
The multidisciplinary law firm is located in both New Orleans and Houston, Tx. and has decided to work with Transportation Consultants Inc., as they continue to assess the needs of their Houston-based staff and attorneys.
“TCI and its employees are eager to help our neighbors in Houston as they begin to recover from the devastating flooding,” said Jack C. Jensen, CEO of Transportation Consultants Inc. in a press release. “It was just 12 short years ago, as a company operating in the Ninth Ward, that we experienced the compassion and support from across the country, and especially from Houstonians. We encourage all New Orleanians to find a way to give time, money or goods to the recovery, and we appreciate Councilmember Brossett for organizing this effort.”
The following supplies are being accepted:
- bedding and pillows
- baby formula
- pet food
- cell phone chargers
- feminine hygiene products
- power strips
- clothing and toiletries
Goods can be dropped off to Transportation Consultants Inc., located at 4001 Alvar Street. There will be a drop point at this location between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m on Tuesday, Sept. 5. Transportation Consultants Inc. will then deliver all donations brought to the drop-off location Tuesday afternoon.
“Here in New Orleans, we know all too well the heartbreak and devastation our neighbors in Houston are having to endure at this terrible time,” said District D Councilmember Brossett. “They did not forsake us in our time of need and we will not forsake them. We will continue to stand with Houston, and all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, as they work toward recovery and resilience.”
