Dee Dee Dochen remembered how touched she was following the Memorial Day flood when people decided to bring over lunches and a smile when recovery efforts began. So she decided to organize a similar effort post Harvey. She put out a call on Facebook late Tuesday evening and, on Wednesday morning, more than a dozen friends and West U neighbors joined together to package 300 lunches with sandwiches, chips and water. Dessert Gallery owner Sara Brook added sandwiches, cookies and provided the refrigerated truck and off they went.

The "Harvey Sandwich Brigade," as they referred to the group, walked and rode as many Meyerland streets as they could. “The reactions just made us wish we could have made enough for the entire affected community,” Dee Dee said.
