(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Conscious Alliance team members are traveling to Houston on Sepember 2 to assist the Houston Food Bank with their hurricane relief efforts. Over the course of the last 48 hours, Executive Director Justin Baker secured initial donations of $10,000, made arrangements with the national office of America's Second Harvest Food Bank, the Houston Food Bank, and Costco managers in Houston and secured a Penske truck with which they will purchase and deliver pallets of food to support the refugees arriving from the Superdome and Convention Center.
The String Cheese Incident and their management/booking company Madison House are arranging for three-to-four additional semi trucks to meet Conscious Alliance in Texas and are helping to mobilize the music community around the cause. Baker and Conscious Alliance board member, Don Strasburg, plan to stay in Houston until their relief funds run dry. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
