Helping others in need: One Houston furniture store owner who said his community has supported him through tough times is paying it forward by turning his two stores into shelters to help evacuees. After Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale of Gallery Furniture gathered volunteers and his delivery trucks to rescue people. “We had several Penske rental trucks, 24-foot trucks that you can get in any flooded street,” he said Monday. “We sent volunteers out in Houston picking up people.” Now 400 children and adults are living at his two stores, and he has allowed the families to bring their pets. McIngvale and his army of volunteers also are providing free breakfast, lunch and dinner for the evacuees. https://goo.gl/Ui9zvB
