MONTGOMERY CO., AL (WSFA) -

The Beasley Allen Law Firm has loaded up a Trial Truck that will be heading out to Houston Wednesday. The truck is filled with cases of bottled water for residents displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

According to Helen Taylor with the firm, the idea came from not only the firm’s motto, “Helping those who need it most”, but also the founding member of Beasley Allen, Jere Beasley, was born in Texas and he felt the need to do this.

The water will be delivered to the main office of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, located in Dallas. From there, the water will be distributed to those who need it.

There are opportunities all around Montgomery to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.?

Century Church in Pike Road is partnering with Faith Bridge Church, located just outside of Houston to collect ‘Tools for Texas’. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, the church will be collecting new and gently used tools in the parking lot of the Chantilly Parkway Home Depot. Collections will also be taken at the church office on Bridge Street in the Waters.

The Tipping Point in the Hampstead neighborhood is also stepping up to help Texas. Restaurant officials say they will donate 10 percent of all sales between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. Wednesday to help with relief efforts.

The Lanier High School JROTC and Lanier Parents Center is also working to help Harvey victims. They will be collecting personal hygiene items like tooth brushes, tooth paste, soap and brushes through Monday. The goal is to fill at least a 1,000-gallon freezer bags filled with those items.
