Hurricane Harvey made its first landfall on the Texas coast at Rockport Friday August 25th as a Category 4 hurricane, and moved back out over the bay before making a second landfall as a Category 3 hurricane. Harvey's intense winds and prolonged heavy rainfall devastated the Texas coast and coastal areas in Louisiana, causing dangerous flooding and spawning tornadoes.
The Smith Drug Operations Team and the SmithPride Committee quickly organized an effort to provide much needed drinking water to the Gulf Coast area. Their goal was to provide 100 cases of water to the affected areas. Smith employees quickly gave from their hearts, donating both cash and supplies to the effort.
If you look closely at the photos, you can see not 100 cases, but FOUR PALLETS of bottled water and an additional three pallets of supplies like soap and diapers.
These donated supplies left our Spartanburg warehouse this afternoon, headed to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
