A Central Texas Hewitt man will be collecting donations and supplies to take down to South Texas.

Douglas Gollihar said he will be collecting donations at the Walmart on Hewitt Drive Monday morning starting at 11:30 a.m. 

He is putting together a team with one other person to travel to areas affected by Hurricane Harvey with his Jeep and boat. He has been filling his car with supplies like dry clothes, food and water to bring to those in need in South Texas. 

"So far we've got clothes, water, gas, food, diapers, baby formula, baby food, just anything. Anything and everything," said Gollihar.  

Gollihar, a construction worker, said his job can wait since there are people who need his help. 

"I don't know, I see something on the news, I feel a calling on my heart and I just follow it. I go wherever I can to help out," said Gollihar. 

If anyone is interested in helping Gollihar, you can contact him by phone at 719-433-2037.

He plans to leave Central Texas around 1 p.m. Monday, and will remain in the Houston area for as long as he's needed.
