31912912_1533510661495446_r.jpegHi, my name is David.  I met Elmer on a service call to his house for his Internet.  It wasn't long before I figured out that this man needed help, and a lot of it.  His home flooded in Harvey almost a year ago.  His luck hasn't changed much since then.  He is a 70 year old veteran, served 2 years in active duty and 4 years in the reserves.  He worked his whole life, owns his home and just recently lost his wife back in January.  10 years ago she slipped and fell and hit her head, she never fully recovered and lived out her days at a nursing home. 4 years ago Elmer had a stroke and is partially parilized from that.  His roof leaks, there's a lot of mold from the flood and leaking.  He has three small dogs, and that's about it.  Not much has been done since Harvey on his home. There is a lot of mold, he had one window unit in his bedroom and I have since brought him another one to try and cool things off.  He says it gets up to about 100 degrees in his house. Im trying to get some volunteers to help him restore his home to at least make it livable.  He needs a new roof, everything gutted from his home floor walls and ceilings furniture and exterior repairs as well.  He gave me permission to take his picture and get his story out there.  He never asked me for help, I think that's just the kind of man he is.  Anything helps and if you can offer any other assistance feel free to reach out to me through GoFundMe.31912912_1533510525800485_r.jpeg31912912_1534042371496673_r.jpeg31912912_1534042429210377_r.jpeg

Started work on the garage today, filled another roll off dumpster. That is the 5th roll off we have filled over the last two months. It has been slow going, planning to tear down the garage next weekend. Come out and give us a hand, or donate. If you know a contractor willing to help, or go to a church and want to spread the word. We need help. However we can get it.

We had another good volunteer work day today at Elmer's house. A lot of the demo inside has been done. We are getting materials and a job plan lined out. It hasn't been easy to get to this point, but were not giving up on Elmer. Please share, we need volunteers on Saturdays. Please donate. Let's get Elmer home.

It's been over a month since we started helping Elmer, it's been pretty slow going and we need your help. So far the money is being used to house Elmer at a hotel. That wont last forever. We need to get him back into his home. I've met some amazing people willing to help in any way they can, but we still need materials, man power and funding to get things going. If you can share this, share it. If you can donate time or materials please email me at davidbryanhollars@gmail.com

Thank you all for the continued support.

We started clean out at Elmer's house today. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who showed up today. A special thanks to Team Rubicon for providing assistance, and the Alvin High School JROTC for showing up and getting things done. Those were some of the most respectful kids I've met in a long time. We were able to get most of his house cleared out and sorted through. Theres still a long road ahead to recovery for Mr. Branch, anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.
