The project represents part of the more than $1 million in furnishings for Harvey victims like these 176 families in the northeast Houston neighborhoods of Greensbrook Manor and Harrel Park. Homeowners will begin receiving deliveries and donations in early November, after working with Houston Habitat for Humanity volunteers to restore their homes.
“Driving the streets of these neighborhoods with piles of memories stacked on the front lawns was all we had to see,” says Houston Ashley HomeStore CEO Gary Seals. “Then it was all about teaming up with Deshaun to get these families help.”
“Having Deshaun Watson and Ashley team up for this kind of donation truly is a gift beyond our wildest dreams,” says Allison Hay, executive director of Houston Habitat for Humanity. “Ironically, just last year, one of our homeowners was gifted with furniture and goods by Warrick Dunn, the same person that helped Deshaun and his family move into their Habitat home in Georgia. Deshaun’s continued support with Ashley HomeStore certainly sends a strong message to our Habitat homeowners in Houston that we build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”
While the homes are undergoing repairs, homeowners will work with Ashley HomeStore to ensure the appropriate furnishings are provided.
