This episode of the podcast is going to be a little different than usual. As y’all know, Texas was rocked by Hurricane Harvey last week, particularly the Houston area — which happens to be where I live. That’s why I thought I’d give y’all a look at my evacuation experience, as well as sharing the stories of a a couple EPIC employees whose families felt the wrath of Harvey. My goal is this: to highlight how, in the grand scheme of things, the problems we faced (and in some cases, are still facing) are minor inconveniences compared to so many others who have been left homeless or worse in the hurricane’s wake. Unfortunately, such tragedy touched one of our very own EPIC wolfpack. We’ll hear from our founder Katie’s mother, Terri as she shares an incredible story of courage and kindness.
And to help make some sense of things and how we can all do our part to help out, I chat with Elizabeth Pena, Development Director for the Central Texas Food Bank. In addition to being our closest charitable partner, the food bank has been running at full steam collecting donations and getting aid to people in need.
