Billy Lopez, owner of AJ's Logistic Services, LLC., knew he wanted to help the communities that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

"I just wanted to give back," he said. 

Lopez and about a dozen of his employees and business partners took the day off on Sept. 7 to make the trip to Refugio from Kenedy and surrounding areas. They stationed themselves off Highway 77 in a parking lot.

Lopez said they purchased 300 pounds of fajitas and sausage and started grilling that early morning. The meal also included chips, dessert and a drink.

"We started at 7:30 (in morning) because we wanted to start feeding at 11," he said. "We never stopped cooking. At one time we even had a drive-thru."

People lined up to receive fajita and sausage tacos, and after a long day they ended up feeding about 900 people.

"We fed everybody and anybody," Lopez said. "A lot of construction workers, electricians, residents and even some with the National Guard."

He also had help from the Jalisco Mexican restaurant from Kenedy that donated 1,000 tortillas and Republic Services of San Antonio who contributed with soda drinks and cooking duties. 

Along with the meal, Lopez said they also distributed care packages that included insect repellant, trash bags, latex gloves and other household items.

Lopez said the atmosphere was unique in that everyone was there to lend a hand.

"The community coming together, it was real neat," he said. "Everybody was being real thankful, they didn't have anything."
