A week after Hurricane Harvey, the wettest tropical hurricane on record in the contiguous United States flooded thousands of homes and displaced over 30,000 people, I had the chance to join a group of 100 volunteers that met up in Victoria, Texas to help with the relief effort.

The homeowners with flood damage were told to put all of their damaged belongings on the curb where they will be picked up later and hauled to the land fill.
