As the rain continues to pour in Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, several St. Louis area businesses are opening their doors, and their parking lots, to send the many thousands of people in and around southeast Texas goods and needs.

Of the services available, is Lebanon, Ill.-based Stock Transport, who plan to work with a handful of Metro East businesses over the next several days to collect and ship out donations to Texas at a later date.
