When Kingwood PC Repair was flooded with nearly 5 feet of water, owner Ross Davis could not repair computers, so instead he opened a food bank inside his gutted storefront.
Since Hurricane Harvey ravaged the community near his business, Davis has given out bottled water, ice, pizza, hotdogs and Gatorade to anyone in need who could walk to the business, he said.
“I saw a need—I saw these workers were coming in here, [and]most of them didn’t have a lunch,” Davis said. “There was nowhere they could just walk across to even get lunch because everything within walking distance was underwater.”
Davis said he has taken advantage of his friends’ willingness to help, and the food and supplies keep arriving. He said he hopes to keep the food bank going until the shop is ready to open for business again, which is expected sometime this fall.
