Although miles away from the devastation, many here in the South Bay opened their hearts and wallets to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in August. A.C.T. (Aid Cleveland, Texas) was sister city Manhattan Beach’s effort offering aid to this small town that was directly affected by the hurricane. The organization collected supplies from local residents and delivered them to the 8,000 people in need. The items departed Mira Costa High School, whose principal, Ben Dale, is a native of Cleveland. A local photojournalist documented members of the Texas community in the days after receiving the relief supplies.
They’re worth their salt.
