Texas woman uses her coupon clipping skills to help hurricane survivors

Kimberly Gager of San Antonio, Texas, admits she has a couponing addiction -- but in Hurricane Harvey’s wake, she’s putting her shopping hobby to good use to help those who lost property in the storm.
“I just really want people to know, ‘Hey I’m here, I’m real. This isn’t a joke. If you need supplies, let me know,’” Gager, 39, told ABC News of the stacks of diapers, baby wipes, baby food, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper, detergent, toothpaste and other personal hygiene supplies lining her garage.

Gager said she thinks she’s helped nearly 30 different groups of people or families who’ve stopped by her home to pick up goods after hearing of her generosity by word of mouth or on Facebook.

She’s also making personal deliveries to those displaced from the storm in nearby hotels.

Bridget Martinez and her family from Ingleside, Texas, are personally benefiting from Gager’s extra supplies. Martinez said she's blown away by her kindness.

“I looked her up on Facebook, sent her a message this morning, and she responded right away. Two hours later, here she is,” Martinez, 30, told ABC News of connecting with Gager. “I am very grateful. These are necessities that we don’t have the cash for right now. I’ve gone to a church for help but we didn’t get as much there as she’s helping us.”

Martinez, a mother of five, said she’s been home to survey the damage several times since the storm.

“The entire ceiling collapsed,” she said of their four-bedroom house. “Our house on the outside looked fine, but everything from the top of the inside came down. 50 percent of our stuff is gone. The master bedroom, my son’s room and the kitchen all fell in.”

Martinez said her husband went back to work last week, and FEMA denied them housing and rental assistance.

“Right now they’re just helping with our hotel cost,” she said, adding she has no idea what they’re going to do in two weeks when their hotel costs are no longer covered.

But for now, she’s just looking forward to the small joys in life: diapers for her children, and shaving her legs.

“I’m completely grateful. I hope God blesses her in every way possible,” Martinez said while fighting back tears. “This is awesome.”
