Hurricane Harvey & Irma-How the High Country can HELP!

As many Americans know, Hurricane Harvey has wrecked most of Texas (and now Irma is on its way to East Coast), leaving several without food, water and shelter.  As a country we have always found a way to unite to help our neighbors in these crises, and this natural disaster(s) has many calling out for help. One of the most beautiful qualities of living in the High Country is how our sense of community seems to supersede all the rest. Outsiders would call it “southern hospitality” but we all know in our hearts that it’s just being a good, loving neighbor!
