Thousands of kayaks are being loaded onto trucks and are headed from Muskegon, Michigan down to Texas and Louisiana to help aid in Hurricane Harvey relief.

According to mlive, Muskegon-based KL Outdoor/GSC Technologies is sending 2,000 of their personal watercrafts and a whole truckload of jon boats to help those ravaged by this storm.

“Our consumers are suffering down there,” said Chuck Smith, CEO of KL Outdoor/GSC Technologies. “Anything we can do to make life a little bit easier for them is a good thing.”
