Reed's Metals Participating In Hurricane Harvey Relief
Brookhaven, MS - The governor of Mississippi is joining forces with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), Reed’s Metals President Bernard Reed, local schools and businesses to aid in relief and restoration across the Houston area due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
Gov. Phil Bryant, Reed and Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Cindy Hyde-Smith will be at The Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson on Friday, September 8, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. to pick-up cleaning supplies and other necessity items.
A spokesman confirms that Bryant is working with MEMA to coordinate relief efforts with faith-based group United Methodist Community on Relief (UMCOR) to begin the process of restoration once the water recedes from affected Houston homes.
"This is a coordinated effort we are proud to assist in. The governor and I believe it is our moral responsibility to lend a helping hand to our neighboring state of Texas,” Reed said.
Reed’s Metals will work with local Lincoln County schools and businesses to help fill the truck with masks, gloves, mops, buckets and other necessity items. Reed’s Metals will make a final pick-up of supplies at The Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson on Friday, September 8, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. and will self-deploy items to the Houston area on Friday, September 8 immediately after.
“This is not a first-time effort that aligns with our Reed's Rescue and Relief Initiative. Since Katrina, we have donated countless food, water and other necessities to victims of natural disasters. We are happy to work with all schools, businesses, state agencies and more to help in any way we can,” Reed said.
Across the state of Mississippi, individuals can drop-off at any Reed’s Metals location in Meridian, Tupelo, Richland and Brookhaven. Please contact any participating Lincoln County school or organization for more drop-off locations and times.
