The Jim Wells County Republican Party collected non-perishable and water to help flood victims from the Hidalgo County/ Rio Grande Valley area at Silver Star Food Stores.

On Friday morning Jim Wells County Republican Party treasure and outreach chair, Amanda Sue Friedeck drove down to McAllen to pass over the items to the Hidalgo GOP and Young Republicans.

Hidalgo County Young Republicans outreach chair, Chelsea Howell explained that they will be sending all the collected items to local churches around the area. The area is still recovering after the heavy rain that happened last week.

The Jim Wells County Republican Party would like to thank everyone who stopped by and helped with this donation drive.
