“During Hurricane Harvey in 2017, Randy Skinner and his organization ‘City Transformation’ played a critical role in bringing resources, awareness, and relief organizations together. City Transformation had boots on the ground day one for recovery efforts, and if it wasn’t for them working very closely with local and state government leaders, local church communities, and other outside relief organizations, my business would not have recovered as quickly and as beautifully as it did.”
