In the days since Hurricane Harvey pummeled communities in South Texas, more than 8,000 Crisis Care Kits have been shipped from our warehouses to local churches in the affected areas. Those churches have been distributing Crisis Care Kits among other resources to families who have lost everything — all in the name of Christ.
The disaster response in South Texas is far from over, and the rebuilding process will take years.
Even as churches in South Texas continue to open their doors to flood victims, Hurricane Irma is bearing down on Caribbean countries and moving toward Florida. Churches are mobilizing to serve in affected communities.
More than 3,600 Crisis Care Kits are on the way to South Florida, but more are needed. The warehouses we use to store and ship the kits are almost empty.
How You Can Help Disaster Victims
Please pray for families and individuals affected by flooding and storms. Pray for those who are most vulnerable, especially seniors, people with disabilities, and those living in poverty. Pray for church leaders and churches who are responding to the needs around them.
