In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey hitting our state of Texas, we, like so many of you, have been looking for ways to help those who were impacted by the storm. Now that the flood waters have receded, many people are left with the daunting task of ridding their homes of everything that was ruined in the flood along with anything retaining moisture that will cause mold to grow and pose a threat to their health. Last week, we were able to see the needs first hand, as a group from our Austin office drove to Houston and spent the day as a water extraction team in one of these homes, through the flood relief efforts of Antioch Church. Antioch has been key in organizing teams of volunteers from all over the country who come to Houston and they’ve already made an impact on over 150 homes, which is amazing! However, the need is still greater.
As we were there this week, their team shared that their biggest need is for more people to come and serve. They’ve organized hundreds of volunteers and they still have a long list of homes that need help. SO, if you’re in Texas or a surrounding state and want to help, we encourage you to GO! Drive in with some friends, family, or maybe your worship team, come to Houston and they’ll provide the tools, training, and send you out to a home in need. If you can’t go, but you’re able to give, we encourage you to do so and 100% of your giving will be used by Antioch Houston to provide relief to flood victims. For every dollar you give, we’ll match it up to $10,000.
We’ve set up giving links for $5, $50, or $250 through our online store which you can purchase with cash or credits from your account. If you’d prefer to give to Antioch Houston directly, just send us the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll match it.
For more info, we encourage you to reach out to Antioch Houston or contact us through email@example.com.
