When disaster strikes, Cara Adams jumps into action. After Hurricane Harvey, she organized community-wide efforts as part of the Hurricane Moms Memorial group. When the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was cancelled due to coronavirus, Cara and her friend, Nicole Lopez-Cummins, created a Facebook group, Texas Festival Vendors (previously called Houston Rodeo Vendors 2020) to connect rodeo vendors with buyers. It is still active today. So, when Hurricane Laura hit, friends called Cara, wondering how to help those impacted. The next morning, Cara created an Amazon Wish List and quickly raised enough money to purchase and send dozens of pallets with water, bleach, paper towels and other vital supplies. Donations poured in. Cara and volunteers from CrowdSource Rescue were able to send 30-foot trailers of supplies. Cara decided to set up a nonprofit called Texas Relief Warriors to provide help after crises and with ongoing community projects. Pictured are (from left) America Gussett, Nicole and Cara.
