Willow Creek Elementary School served as a temporary supply and meal station after Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 35 inches of rain on the community, flooding many out of their homes.  Harvey's drenching rain on Tuesday and Wednesday pushed local residents of Kings Point and Foster's Mill subdivisions from their residences.
Willow Creek Principal Scott Duncan led the effort. They were able to find 50 to 60 host families for people who needed host homes and served hundreds of meals. Duncan said, "We put out a call to the community and got a tremendous response. Within 20 minutes, people were bringing in supplies and crockpots full of hot meals."
