WIMBERLEY, Texas (KXAN) — It’s been nearly one year since flooding and severe weather wreaked havoc on the lives and homes of Central Texas residents last Memorial Weekend.
A group of volunteers with the Blanco River Regional Recovery Team (BR3T), stepped in to aid victims by cleaning and repairing damaged homes. Now the organization is looking for help.
BR3T is expecting hundreds of volunteers to arrive through the end of the summer to help rebuild homes, but they have no where to stay.
“We need dorm rooms, apartments, houses, motel or hotel rooms and RV spaces with utility hookups,” said James Gabriel, BR3T Executive Director. “Our volunteers are here to help us and while they don’t require luxury accommodations, they do need a place to stay.”
Some volunteers will be in the area for weeks at a time, others for months, so a variety of living options are being considered.
Anyone with living quarters available for use by the Blanco River Regional Recovery Team is asked to call (512) 677-5933 or stop by the office located at 801 W MLK in San Marcos.
