A group of nine friends from Xenia are currently on their way to Texas with trailers full of supplies to aid hurricane victims. The group calls themselves the, “Xenia boys,” and they say it feels good to do their part in the relief effort.
The group collected three trailers of various items that were donated from the Miami Valley and they were all delivered to Julia Long’s home in Xenia. The Long family has relatives in Houston and Julia’s son Shawn is one of the nine, “Xenia boys,” making the trip to Houston.
"It feels fantastic,” Julia Long stated. “And it makes me feel very proud of the boys taking this on and doing something for somebody else that's in need. And to see a community come together in a time of crisis to help out somebody else."
The group is also towing two boats with them to possibly aid with any rescue efforts in the Houston flood waters.
News Center 7’s John Bedell is also tracking other local relief efforts for Harvey and will have more information starting at 5 p.m. on Channel 7 WHIO.
