"Anyone watching the news these last few days knows that the people of Granbury, Moore and elsewhere are really hurting, so we mobilized our resources to help as much as we possibly could," said Clay Dover, company spokesperson. "We organized a similar effort last year when tornadoes pummeled North Texas, so we have a pretty good system in place that we know works well."
