In the midst of the deadly Texas floods caused by Hurricane Harvey, employees at a local Pizza Hut franchise made and delivered hot slices to those in need.

Shayda Habib, the manager of Pizza Hut in Oak Lake, and her employees rushed to their restaurant on Wednesday to hurriedly prepare food after hearing that families nearby were trapped in their homes and were running out of food.

With the food secured in red delivery pouches, the pizza makers utilized kayaks to hand out the pies to hungry families.

Habib said she plans on delivering more pizzas on Thursday or until the store runs out of food to deliver.

Pizza Hut thanked the team on Twitter, writing, “THANK YOU to our Oak Lake Pizza Hut team for their out-of-the-car response to deliver hot pizzas all day to the community they serve.”
