Donate to Local Organizations- Hurricane Harvey Relief

5

Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas Gulf Coast over the weekend, causing heartbreaking destruction. The Houston Metropolitan area in particular is suffering with severe, record breaking flooding. Many people have lost their homes and all they owned. Some have even lost their lives. It goes without saying that we are in need of help!

Please consider making a donation to one of the LOCAL organizations listed below to help in the relief effort. The funds collected will go directly to individuals in need. If you are in the Houston area and are able to volunteer in any capacity, please do!

Above all, pray for the Houston area and the entire Texas Gulf Coast region. Pray that all in need of rescue will be carried to safety. Pray for the healing and restoration of this area. Philippians 2:3-4: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
