Last Tuesday a social media post was posted on the I Care About Florissant group about Dalmation Cleaning & Restoration taking donations of water for the Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas. Todd Seagraves asked the Greater North County Chamber office to be a drop off point and the chamber quickly sent out emails, text messages and posted on social media pages asking the community to drop off cases of water.

“We thought we’d get 20 cases and hand them to folks when we got there,” Seagraves stated, “this is beyond what we expected.” In less than 12 hours, the North St. Louis County community dropped off cases of water to the chamber office located on 420 W. Washington in Florissant.

“We are in awe of the amount of generosity from our community. It really just goes to show how caring and wonderful the people of North County are,” said Venus Martz, president of the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce, “we’ve received so many calls of people wanting to help, it’s just wonderful to see so many stepping up to help our neighbors down in Texas.”

The chamber’s Jaime Jenkins recruited McClure North’s Soccer team to help load the water into Dalmation’s trucks after their Tuesday game. The amount of donations added up to over 200 cases of water filling up Dalmation Cleaning & Restoration’s two pickup trucks, their moving truck and their trailer. The Dalmation crew headed to Texas Wednesday morning and were there to help with cleanup for the next few weeks.
