Hurricane Harvey Relief (How can you help?)
If you are able in the weeks and months ahead various efforts will be ongoing to help rebuild the areas hardest hit in Texas by Hurrican Harvey. Give a day or a weekend to help just one family. Don’t become overwhelmed with the magnitude of the catastrophe – you cannot help everyone but each of us can help someone.
The following is a short list of ministries which are helping in the recovery effort. By going to the individual websites listed you will find opportunities to give, to pray for specific needs and to roll up your sleeves and help:
