Team Rubicon’s got 32 members on the ground in Houston to serve those affected by flooding, and that number will climb to 50 by this weekend. Since April 22, 1,272 hours have been logged on Operation Moonshot.


The FOB’s set up in the Home Depot lot next to our partners at ITDRC and NRG Energy, our team is resting their heads at Camp Hope in a residence built in memory of Clay Hunt, and strike teams are mucking out homes and planting sweaty hugs on dozens of thankful residents.


Those in the Houston area who wish to request assistance can call 281-417-8887. If you’re able to support our response, visit teamrubiconusa.org/donate to back up the team in the field.
