DANIELLE PALMER, of St. Louis, Mo, donated 1,040 ounces of breast milk to moms affected by Harvey. She has been pumping breast mild for her son ever since he was born, and has an oversupply stored in the freezer.
  She gave the milk to Guiding Star Mid-Missouri, who packed it in a freezer surrounded by ice packs on a truck and drove it to Texas.





















Kimberly Gager, of San Antonio, has found a creative way to help Harvey victims.
 An expert coupon clipper, Gager has helped more than
 30 families so far by doing what she does best: extreme couponing.

  She has purchased and donated diapers, baby food, toys, beauty products, and toiletries to those in need.
   "Hey, I'm here, I'm real. This isn't a joke. If you need supplies, let me know", Gager told ABC News.
