Richmond, Texas( CNN) David and Maria Parks sit for hours on a sofa, intently watching bulletin footage of flooding in Houston. This couch is the one place they have left to go for now.

The Parks and about 300 other evacuees are taking refuge in the 160,000 -square-foot showroom of the Gallery Furniture store just outside of Houston. The store’s admittance is filled with neatly folded towels, shoes, robes and toys donated by locals.

Owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale is known in all areas of the Houston area not only for his zany commercials but his generosity.
