Appreciation BBQ & Additional Hurricane Harvey Donation Opportunity Tomorrow


A Green River resident collecting donations for Hurricane Harvey relief is hosting an appreciation BBQ on Thursday.

Laurissa Lee is hosting the BBQ from 3 p.m. until approximately 7 p.m. (or until supplies last) on Thursday, September 21st at Lucky Cactus Tattoo, located at 160 E. Flaming Gorge Way in Green River.

The BBQ is in appreciation of all those who have donated to the cause and provides another drop off location for Hurricane Harvey donations.

Lee will be participating in clean up and rebuilding activities in Texas and will transport all donated materials to Houston on or about September 29th.

To help Lee in her donation collection, the City of Green River has provided drop off locations at the Green River Recreation Center and Green River City Hall.
