Whenever tragedy strikes, a universal call to humanity is made. Tolleson’s very own Chef Getchell, or as most fondly call him, Chef G, was quick to answer the call.

As the sponsor of FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America), he proposed that the club collect water bottles to provide assistance to those who lost everything due to Hurricane Harvey.

This cause is held dearly to his heart due to his previous experience in helping those who were affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Most importantly, what truly motivates him is his faith in humanity. 

In grievous times, we must all unite to help those in need.”

— Chef Getchell

When asked if there had been any personal motives involved in starting the water drive, Chef G. said, “I got to thinking, what if that happened to us?”

Now, as many more natural disasters have struck, Chef G. has reached an impasse. Who should be helped: Texas, Florida, Mexico, or the Caribbean? But Chef G. has faith in our community and is confident that we will be able to help them all.

Currently, the club has received three cartons of water bottles, but Chef G was quick to add that the community has stepped up and made monetary donations to the club. All donations will be sent through the American Red Cross Association. As it has been said, natural disasters do not discriminate. Now, our nation has joined, hand in hand to help those in distress.

It is time for Tolleson to step up as the potent community it is and help those in need because just like Chef said, “What if something happened to us?” We would seek all the help possible, and it is time to make a change in the way our generation and society is seen. Let us show that there is still some hope left in humanity. After all, a little always goes a long way.
