BOWLING GREEN, Ky.—Fruit of the Loom pledges to donate roughly one million pieces of clothing to Houston-area residents affected by the damage and devastation of Tropical Storm Harvey. With a large number of residents displaced, the company says it plans to ship essential clothing to the region.
Donations from Fruit of the Loom include clothing basics such as underwear, T-shirts, and sweatpants. The company says two tractor trailers will transport the goods from distribution centers in Montgomery, Alabama, and Palmetto, South Carolina.
The organization says it expects the goods to arrive in the Houston region early next week.
Fruit of the Loom recommends others “join the cause” to provide vital clothing for Houston residents.
Originally making landfall late last week in Texas as a Category 4 Hurricane, Tropical Storm Harvey has since transitioned to a Tropical Depression. The impact in Texas encompasses everything from human casualties and property damage, to blocked or destroyed roads, and more recently concerns over drinking water quality.
The National Hurricane Center projects the storm’s path to move from Louisiana up through Kentucky this weekend.
