In ABWA, we value our
conversations, we share
our experiences, and it takes
cooperation and collaboration to
survive the elements.
We are all in this together.
ABWA's shared sense of community
was further amplified in the aftermath
of Hurricane Harvey, an epic storm that
impacted hundreds of our ABWA sisters in
Texas. Members who could help, reached out
to those in need by sending supplies, washing
clothes, sharing homes and moving damaged
furnishings to the curb.
I reached out to league presidents a few
days after the event. While many reports
were favorable, some were not. Myrleen
Knott, Co-owner/vice president of Buffalo
Flange Inc, and a member from South east
express network (Seen), had extensive
damage to her home and business. And
Sheri parrack, Founder/president of Texas
Motor Transportation Consultants LLC, and
a member of the Houston Area professional

express network described how she had
to be evacuated by boat. Both Sheri
and Myrleen's homes/businesses
are currently undergoing extensive
renovations.
Lindsey Meadows, president of
Meadows Resources, and a member of
Women empowering Women express
network, stepped into action in the
aftermath of the storm. She organized a
volunteer workforce comprised of ABWA
members, employees, and other people from
their community. Their charge: clean houses!
not the usual drive by cleaning that most of
us do each weekend...the type of cleaning
Mike Rowe (host of a Tv series) would refer
to as Dirty Jobs - mucking out living rooms,
kitchens and tearing out dry wall. One week
after the storm, Lindsey's volunteer crew have
cleaned more than two-hundred houses in
the Houston area.
Loss of family, friends, home and job
will test our resilience as individuals and
as a community. And while we may feel
temporarily defeated, one constant
remains true:
ABWA is a place where conversations are valued,
experiences are shared and it takes cooperation
and collaboration to survive the elements.
We are all in this together.
