While temperatures and humidity sore in Hays and Caldwell Counties, Operation: Double Trouble shows no signs of slowing down (just a few more shady water breaks to ensure our crew remains hydrated). Since arriving to Wimberley, TX on May 28, 145 volunteers have logged more than 4,000 hours to support residents affected by recent flooding.
Tasks force teams with muck out and sawyer capabilities have been pushing out regularly after on-site chainsaw training was conducted in the first week of the operation. Also, the heavies were called in through the City of Wimberley to demo homes deemed inhabitable while Palantir Tech deployed six of their support staff to check out our progress with damage assessments on the ground.
Furthermore, we get by with a little help from local volunteers, which includes members of Team Depot, the Wimberley High School Football Team, Kyle Anderson and Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs, and a few dozen associates from nearby Walmart stores. The Walmart Foundation generously donated the manpower along with $100,000 to support our ongoing flood relief efforts in Texas.
