Members from Houston, South Houston, Pasadena, and the Rio Grande Valley have gathered at the Buc-ees in Katy, where they will depart beginning at 7 a.m.

“It is our honor and privilege to show them, their families, and the town of Uvalde love and support,” the group said according to a Facebook post.

Members of the “Slingshots Y Amigos” also have the same mission.

“We’re all parents here,” said member Meliza Brojas. “If we were in their shoes we would have felt the same love and support.”

This Tuesday marks two weeks since a gunman walked into Robb Elementary School and took the lives of 19 children and two teachers.
