A planned hotel remodel will now help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
For three days, the hotel staff worked with the families and they became more than customers. They became family.
The hotel’s general manager did something unthinkable, but in a good way. He fast-tracked his hotel’s already planned redo and donated nearly ever piece of furniture the hotel had, KHOU reported.
That became every dresser, television, armoire, chair and nightstand. He filled two moving containers that are now parked in the hotel’s parking lot.
Chris Patel, the hotel’s GM, is contacting various groups to help get the furnishings to those who need them, either in new or temporary housing, KHOU reported.
