The First Colony Levee Improvement District #2 Board of Directors wish to thank the residents of The Commonwealth for their gracious support during the Hurricane Harvey flood event. Your words of encouragement and food and drink provided to our workers were greatly appreciated. It really helped boost the spirits of the guys who were working 12 hours on and 12 hours off and unable to leave the
pump station because Houston flooding prevented them from returning to their personal homes.
We would also like to thank the Women’s Club of The Commonwealth. The ladies collected around 300 in gift cards and presented them to us. We were overwhelmed by this kind consideration and we were very appreciative of the sentiments. Thank you all so very much! We have decided to take all of those gift cards and donate them to a wounded veteran’s group called Impact A Hero. The local chapter was founded 14 years ago and provides funds and moral support to severely wounded veterans that, to this day, are still coming back from the war in Afghanistan. The Impact a Hero board visits the Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio each year at Christmas to bring cheer to the vets and their families. The gift cards are perfect for the families and the cash will be used to purchase toys for the children. We attempted to do our best to protect our community and now your thank you gifts will be given to some military veterans who worked to protect our nation.
Thanks again for your support to our District workers. We are always trying to get better and your support means a lot to the Board of Directors and to our contractors.
