As devastating pictures and video are surfacing from Hurricane Harvey in Texas, more local companies are stepping up and helping out. 

According to a Jarrettsville Creamery & Deli Facebook event, they were asked by a customer if they could be a drop-off location for non-perishable items to support the people affected by Harvey. 

Without hesitation, the Creamery said yes!
