Tillys trucks heading to supply Hurricane Harvey relief (Photo: Business Wire)Tillys originally planned on loading and driving one truck with goods to Texas. However, donations multiplied after an email was sent asking Tillys employees, as well as the local community, to donate an array of flood recovery items. The goods filled three 26-foot trucks, as well as another vehicle. The first truck contained Tillys merchandise, cleaning products, hygiene products and non-perishable food. The second truck contained baby supplies from the Purist Group, car enthusiasts who help members of the community when in need, and the third truck contained apparel from Nitro Circus, an action sports entertainment collective led by pro motorsports icon Travis Pastrana. Tillys also partnered with officers from the Los Angeles Police Department and Long Beach Police Department. They volunteered to assist with driving, as well as loading and unloading of the trucks. Hezy Shaked, Tillys Co-Founder & Chairman of the Board, stated: "We are grateful that we could contribute aid to the Hurricane Harvey victims, and we thank all those who donated to fill our trucks with supplies. We extend our support to the victims impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and we urge people to help support those affected in any way they can." The trucks will be delivering the supplies in the Houston area at two distribution centers for flood recovery, including Hope City Church and Attack Poverty, a nonprofit organization in Richmond, Texas.
