    Many of our friends and families in Texas have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Two Camping World locations, in Houston and San Antonio, are experiencing first-hand the impact of the storm. We want to assist members of these communities and have created the following efforts.

    Beginning today, all Camping World SuperCenters are collecting new or gently used clothing for adults and children to send to the affected areas. Pants, shirts, shoes, shorts, jackets…all types of clothing are needed. We will ensure that all donated clothing is transported and distributed to those in need as soon as possible.

    In addition, we will be taking donations for the American Red Cross. Camping World will MATCH total contributions up to 2 million dollars. You give $10, we give $10. All donations received at any Camping World SuperCenters now through Labor Day will qualify for the match.

    If you would like to help, please visit www.CampingWorld.com/stores to find a SuperCenter near you. We hope you will join us in helping the victims of this devastating storm.

    Wow, what a huge donation on money and effort!

    As I watch the sheer determination of the thousands of volunteers moving as one into the hardest hit areas, some coming from out of state as many in the Cajun navy and other groups, even as far away as from up here in Fairfax Va, it shows how strong the bonds are that binds us all together as Americans.

    This is a wonderful thing for Camping World to do and will certainly help many thousands stuck by the flooding. I am seeing these types of impromptu charities popup everywhere this week as all corners of our nation responds to those in need. Many groups are gathering money and goods and sending a single or caravan of trucks to TX to drop off, all with no thought of reward...........times like this show us that we are more alike than different.

    It will be interesting to see how many other nations offer assistance.....
