IMMEDIATE NEED

DONATED SUPPLIES

IMMEDIATE NEED: DONATED SUPPLIES

One of their initial needs we can help meet, in addition to financial donations, is basic supplies. Drop-off sites are being organized through our coalitions and their congregations to receive supply donations and get them to the families in need.

Supply List Has Been Updated

Multiple organizations are helping with recovery in the disaster-affected areas. Working conditions are difficult and amenities are presently limited.

If you are planning to volunteer, prepare by accessing training and resources to related to how you intend to serve. 

One way to contribute financially to the Hurricane Laura recovery effort is through Houston Responds.
