You Can Bring Hope to Hurricane Harvey Evacuees

90.9 KCBI is working with First Baptist Dallas to bring hope to Hurricane Harvey victims and evacuees.  First Dallas is committed to transforming our world with God’s Word…one life at a time. That includes serving and supporting our fellow Texans in need currently dealing with the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Here’s how you can help:

SUPPORT: We have chosen to partner with trained First Responders through Texas Baptist Men. The organization was founded in 1968 and the group has responded to every major disaster in Texas in the last 50 years. We are also partnering with the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention. We are encouraging people who want to give to give to these two organizations as they support relief efforts.  Click here to give to Texas Baptist Men.  Click here are details about how you can help the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention.

SEND: Samaritan’s Purse is a volunteer relief program. Teams comprised of 15 members each will go down and help in clean-up efforts as soon as the disaster declaration has been lifted. We plan to form as many teams as possible and send our people as soon as we are able.  For more information, click here.

SUPPLY: Locally we are partnering with Trusted World, the leading organization for the Dallas area, to provide needed donations to evacuees from the storm. The organization is also in need of drivers to collect and drop off donations. A full list of needed donations can be seen at Donations can be dropped at the primary collection point, 3000 West Kingsley Road, Garland 75041, or at Lifesavers Foundation Upscale Resale Store, 561 W. Campbell Rd., Richardson  75080.

SERVE (COMING SOON): We recognize that this disaster has already created long-term effects that will not be solved in a few weeks or a few months. Our desire is to partner long-term to help with relief efforts. We intend to form our own teams to send down to Houston and South Texas for support, church clean up, help with shelters, etc., to meet needs as soon as the water recedes.
