Give and Go to Houston

TN-TX

There are two main ways to help in Houston. One is to go, the other is to give.

GO

For anyone who is interested, Keith McAfee will be taking a team of volunteers who are willing to get dirty.

We will leave on Wednesday and return on Saturday or Sunday (if anyone would like to stay an extra day). Second Baptist Church Of Houston will provide lodging and meals.

Volunteers will help clean houses, pull up carpet, cut sheetrock, etc. Help is also needed unloading trucks, distribute food and cleaning supplies to families.

If you are interested, please text or email Keith for more information.

GIVE

We will be open today until 8pm to accept donations for the Houston Hurricane Relief/Recovery effort. Please see the attached list for items that are needed.

You can also order items listed below and have them shipped to our partner church in Texas. When you order, please order as a gift and include your name and our church so those in TX can find encouragement from the many that are supporting them. Please have them shipped to:

Houston Strong
6400 Woodway Drive
Houston, TX  77057

(Please do not donate clothing or money, unless you want to chip in for fuel and expenses. Any clothing not listed below that is left at the church will be taken to a local Goodwill, but can't be brought to Houston.)
