Phil visits the GRB shelter to spread cheer to those sheltering, as well as those offering shelter, police, Red Cross, FEMA and other organizations staffing the shelter. The Houston Astros had stopped by to help lift spirits as well!

“I had tried to go down a couple days earlier but the flood waters were still to high for me to reach downtown Houston. The water stopped just before it was coming into my home - I got a little in my workshop and my storage was flooded. So I am blessed. So many lost everything. Everybody is helping out doing what they do. I am an entertainer and I wanted to try to bring a smile to folks and let them have just a moment’s pause, maybe even get them to laugh.”
