CITGO and Habitat for Humanity are joining forces to help families in the Coastal Bend rebuild after being devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

During a press conference in Rockport, Governor Greg Abbott announced he would be making a donation to the partnership. The two organizations plan to construct 22 homes for some deserving families in the area.

According to a press release from CITGO, volunteers will help construct these homes in Rockport. The effort is a part of CITGO's 'Fueling Good, Rebuilding Lives' initiative, a massive push to recover the cities hit hardest by Harvey.
