Dozens of volunteers had all hands on deck to help two Rosharon families still recovering after Hurricane Harvey.
The greenhouses were the residents' livelihoods, and now they are in a much better place to continue to grow their crops with the help of several local nonprofits.
"We want to get our hands dirty and help these families," said Linda Luong, Ascend Houston chapter president.
Ascend Houston is a local nonprofit whose members volunteered Saturday to help bring two immigrant families back on their feet after their greenhouses were severely damaged, some destroyed after Hurricane Harvey.
"The greenhouses were these families' sources of income," Luong said.
Ascend Houston members volunteered under Alliance, a local nonprofit that aims to help refugees, immigrants and underserved residents become self-sufficient and improve their quality of life.
