I am so lucky to call Syndicate Barbershop and the Trezise Family, good friends. For the last week, they've organized hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of donations from so many amazing people in Long Beach and surrounding areas. Tim Trezise went door to door for hours, until 3am picking up donations friends, family and followers left on their front porches for multiple nights. Monique ran around organizing peoples donations, responding to constant direct messages of people wanting to help and stop by their house to drop things off--all the while chasing, Zephyr, their 4 and a half year old around during the last years of her summer vacation. 8 days, 2-26 foot Uhauls, and a TON of boxes & tape later, all the goods are on the way to Houston!!!
I went and helped pack everything up in boxes and label everything on Wednesday so that we could get it all into the semi heading to Texas. To see all the love and kindness in peoples hearts as they came to drop off goods, from diapers to dog food to hairbrushes and kids toys, every bit helps.
I took a few minutes to snap a few photos to document the night and only a tiny part of something great.
