Local Priest Pays For Texas Meals

Posted: Updated:

ORANGE, Tx. (LEX 18)-- A priest says he's working to help those in South Texas still dealing with Harvey the best way he knows how...by giving them a warm meal all the way from Kentucky.

Father Jim Sichko is originally from Texas and says his sister still lives there. So far she hasn't experienced much destruction, just some light flooding. 

He decided to call down to a local restaurant in his hometown and tell them not to charge anyone Tuesday from 11 to 12. He says the meals are on him.

"It seems in situations like this, people become very isolated and when you can come together with other people who are experiencing the same thing, it brings a little bit of comfort. It brings some stability. It brings some reassurance that you're not alone," Sichko said.
