Over the past few days, Hurricane Harvey has been wreaking havoc in southern United States. The storm’s torrential rain and devastating winds has cost over 30 lives and has forced more than 30,000 people to flee their homes in Texas.
Four Mexican bakers from El Bolillo Bakery in Houston, Texas, were trapped by the floods for two days. The shop was dry and electricity was still running. Rather than wait around, they saw this as an opportunity to support their community and did what they do best – bake! They cooked hundreds of loaves of bread and pan dulce “all night long” to provide food for those in need.
The bakers posted “Hurricane Harvey pan dulce – we are going to take [it] to those in need,” on social media. In another post, they added “Hearts go out to those in danger and those who have lost everything…we are closed until further notice, but our bakers cooked all night long and we will be prepared to help as soon as we can with bread.”
The bakers have since gone viral and have been praised for their actions. In light of their generosity, many people have asked to donate to the bakery. As a result, the owner, Kirk Michaelis, from Houston Texas has set up a GoFundMe page so that people can make contributions. These donations will go to the employees who have also suffered losses due to Hurricane Harvey and worked tirelessly to support their community.
