Many of our friends and families in Texas were devastated by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. With two Camping World locations (Houston and San Antonio) directly in its path, we experienced the impact of the storm first-hand. Knowing that the storm didn’t just hit members of our Camping World team, we knew we needed to assist members of the greater community.
Across the country, Camping World SuperCenters began collecting new and gently used clothing for adults and children to send to the affected areas, as well as toiletries and other necessities. In the following weeks, hundreds of pallets of donations were transported and distributed to local nonprofits.
In addition to collecting items, Camping World started a fundraising campaign on behalf of the American Red Cross. Through this campaign, Camping World matched $250,000 in donations to help rebuild in the wake of the hurricane.
We didn’t stop there. The Camping World team from the Katy and New Braunfels stores in Texas worked tirelessly to deliver hundreds of RVs to FEMA in Hearn, TX and Beeville, TX to give people a clean, safe place to live in the aftermath of the storm.
