Houston-born rapper Megan Pete, known professionally as Megan Thee Stallion is partnering with NACC Disaster Services (NACC) to rebuild water-logged homes damaged by the winter storm.
Current donors towards the special project, “Helping Houston Rebuild,” include Fashion Nova, 300 Entertainment, Mielle Organics, Revlon, Maroon 5, The Coach Foundation, Taraji P. Henson, Dolce and Gabanna, and more. Donations may be made on the website www.helpinghoustonrebuild.org.
The money will go toward rebuilding damaged homes of single mothers and seniors after the recent weather emergency. Applications can be made through www.helpinghoustonrebuild.org. NACC is partnering with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s office for referrals. Order of receiving aid is based on both critical need and a random drawing overseen by a committee ensuring fairness of selection.
Public adjusters will assess the damages to properties and volunteers will perform “muck outs,” removing the water-logged materials before rebuilding can begin. Rebuilding can include fixing plumbing issues, electricity, structural issues with walls and floors, appliances, furniture, and carpet.
A massive volunteer drive is necessary to rebuild as many homes as possible. Volunteers may sign up at www.helpinghoustonrebuild.org.
The special project is expected to last for two years.
