HEB Delivers with Heart

  HEB is nothing short of amazing in their support for Disaster Response in our community!! Alex, an HEB truck driver, donated his time and made two trips from Austin Disaster Relief Network’s Austin Warehouse on Loop 360 to our San Marcos Warehouse, a newly opened 40,000 sq foot warehouse to help meet the needs of flood survivors. Making the trips over a 2 day turn, Alex and HEB helped ADRN move 24 pallets each day of donated hygiene/cleaning supplies to the San Marcos location in order for flood survivors to conveniently pick up these needed products along with furniture/household items already being collected and stored at this location. Alex had to use an electric pallet jack and do each pallet by hand. He had an amazing attitude and offered to come back if needed! Thank you Alex and HEB!! What a blessing you are to ADRN, the flood survivors and our community!

Danielle stumbled across ADRN in Mardel Christian bookstore in 2012 when she saw an advertisement for a conference.  Seeking a venue to utilize her public health experience and improve her skills, as well as a place to serve God while in the US, she quickly went through both CISM and CERT trainings and was able to assist in Oklahoma and Austin in a variety of capacities.
