I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. The links below will give you a good base of some really great and worthy organizations you can donate to help the people in the Houston area.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief
Star of Hope is in Houston
Donate to a Food Bank
Donate for diapers
Texas Diaper Bank : they are also putting together relief kits for families with young children.
Animal Shelter/Rescue Groups
South Texas Blood & Tissue Center
If you are like me you’ve been watching the news in pure disbelief. What a horrible tragedy this is and it’s not over. To hear these stories of people and children trapped in their homes with the water still rising around them is just a pure nightmare.
I was able to speak to my father yesterday who is in the Houston area (and doing good.) The emotion in his voice talking about friends that have lost everything is just heartbreaking. He gave me a great contact to a church called the First Baptist in Huffman which is just northeast of Houston. I’ve emailed with the deacon directly and this is some things on their wishlist:
Here is their address:
First Baptist Church Huffman
25503 FM 2100 Huffman, TX 77336
Amazon makes life so easy for us. Donate what you can because anything will help someone that has lost everything.
Thank you to all the first responders and the good samaritans that are out there risking their own lives help and save others.
I’m praying for Texas
