Hurricane Harvey has displaced many people and a lot of them are still trying to figure things out. It turns out that some people have been denied government assistance and many were turned away when attempting to get any kind of help for their families.

After a disaster, it can become even more frustrating when the help you thought was available, actually wasn't. That's where 39-year-old Kimberly Gager of San Antonio comes in. Gager is an extreme couponer and gets the most bang for her buck.

Gager admitted she has a shopping addiction, but her addiction is helping many displaced people who lost pretty much everything in the storm. Gager posted to her Facebook page letting people know: "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 staged her own garage as a storage facility for items such as toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant, shampoo, baby food and many other neccessities that people use on a daily basis.

Gager makes trips to the store on a daily basis and also uses her lunch time to make deliveries to people who are in need of items.

One of the people that Gager helped off of Facebook was Carrie Chezem who was staying at a hotel downtown San Antonio.

Back in 1999, Gager's Virginia home was destroyed by Hurricane Floyd.
