Man donates more than 520 gallons of water to residents in the Crossroads

VICTORIA, Texas – Residents in the Crossroads came together during last week’s winter storm in Texas.

Having a family of his own, Tyler Hall understood the difficulties many parents faced not having access to water.

“I have a 4-year-old son and a lot of the families in need have small children,” said Hall. “You need water to take a bath, flush the toilet — make baby bottles.”

Millions of Texans dealt with power outages and many still face issues with their water supply from the devastating storm.

Countless of residents in the Crossroads have stepped up to help their neighbors. They don’t go unnoticed.

“I woke up Monday morning and saw multiple posts on Facebook about residents that still had no water,” said Hall. “I started to think of ways I could help and suddenly realized I could fill my water tank up that’s on my pressure washing trailer and donate water to families in need.”

Originally from Houston, Hall lives in Goliad, but owns a business in Victoria.

So far, he has helped about 15 to 20 different families and has donated more than 520 gallons of water, Hall said.

“I know plumbers are doing their absolute best to keep up, but some residents say they are not sure when they’ll be able to get a plumber to come out and fix their pipes,” said Hall.

Newscenter 25 recently featured another helping member of the Crossroads who was offering free services to people who couldn’t afford a plumber.

“I am traveling to areas like Goliad And Cuero when possible,” said Hall. “I’m trying to make it out to as many people as possible.”

If you are in need of water, Hall said residents can call him at 361-405-1359.

“My community has supported me and my business for three years now and it was finally my time to return the favor,” said Hall.  “I’m all about helping others. I’m a firm believer in the saying ‘A Community That Works Together, Builds Together.”
