When Jeff Draper, Cheif of Operations at Source Construction, called Tom Stringham of Stringham Lumber and asked if he would be willing to help with the supplies being donated to victims of hurricane Harvey, Tom did not hesitate. He immediately rallied his Stringham Lumber team and together they spent many hours putting their full support behind the relief efforts.

 

Tom embodies the spirit of Utahns who join other good people from Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada to give more than a million dollars through KSL TV and Bonneville Radio to the National Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD).  Joava Good, Communications Chair of VOAD,  said that her organization worked directly with KSL to make sure that the funds would make it directly to the people of Texas.

 

Over 200 tons of lumber, sheetrock, nails and other construction materials were loaded on the “Something Can Be Done About It” convoy that stretched over a quarter of a mile. The convoy was organized and funded by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers and  is traveling on behalf of Utah VOAD , including Habitat for Humanity, Adventist Disaster Response, Southern Baptist Convention, the Salvation Army, LDS Charities, the American Red Cross, and the Volunteer Ministers of the Churches of Scientology Disaster Response.

 

The convoy will travel through Utah, Colorado and New Mexico to arrive in Aransas County, Texas, on Friday, Sept. 29. Supplies are being shipped from Salt Lake City because local supplies to rebuild are scarce in many areas of Texas.

 

The city of Rockport, Texas, has set aside a hangar at the Rockport airport to store the building supplies. This is only the first of a series of shipments that will be convoyed to Texas. The next one is scheduled to leave from Salt Lake City in two weeks, and it will also be funded by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers.

 

Times of disasters bring out the best in us. But, at Source Construction we like to imagine a world where people come together not only in time of disaster but as a matter of routine. We prove repeatedly that there is nothing we cannot accomplish when we put political, religious and other differences aside.
