Probably the most famous Houston Astros fan of all time is letting Hurricane Ida evacuees sleep for free at his furniture stores and that's not all.

Mack, gallery furniture employees, and volunteers are collecting donations to send to Southeast Louisiana for Hurricane Ida relief. He says in the interview below with NBC2 in Houston that he's planning on sending 30 box trucks with much-needed supplies.

If you live in Texas or know friends and family who do that would like to help in the donation efforts, items can be dropped off at the Gallery Furniture location at 6006 North Freeway Houston, TX 77076.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
