Local company Bulldog Steel has made the choice to do their part in assisting with relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Four laborers from Bulldog Steel, volunteered on their own to travel to Rockport to deliver machinery and supplies and help any way they could. They originally planned to stay a week, but say that they are willing to stay as longer if needed.
Tanna Bradley, who runs the front desk at Bulldog Steel, says that her brother, Tyler Bradley – an owner of Bulldog Steel, just woke up one day earlier this week and decided to load up a couple of semis with heavy operating machinery and 2 more regular trucks loaded with supplies to Rock Port in order to help with relief efforts. Tanna says that the equipment that was sent will be able to move debris and pull away obstructions, and help to get people to safety.
Tanna also told KBest News that even though Bulldog Steel made no announcement that they were leaving for Rock Port with good intentions, there were people in the community who offered immediate help while they were in the process of gathering supplies and fuel.
Higginbotham offered to send them 48 cases of water with them to Rock Port. Gene Hector with RH Well Services had ran across the Bulldog Steel team fueling their trucks and offered to pay for the fuel for their trip to Rock Port - That was over 500 gallons of fuel.
When asked what inspired them to take action and send help, Tanna said, "We try to come together as a team when bad things happen. We try to bring everybody together so we can help people out. We feel that's the Godly thing to do and if we can give, we love to give."
Bulldog Steel is located at 9702 S. Service Rd. in Big Spring.
