South Shore’s Response to Hurricane Harvey
Duxbury Church is getting involved in the relief efforts to help those in need that have been subjected to Hurricane Harvey. There are several organizations and opportunities to consider that are making an impact and serving families on both the physical and spiritual level. Below is some information about these organizations. In addition, Duxbury Church is in the process of establishing a local drive in Duxbury, MA to collect items that are in need to help families affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Two Samaritan’s Purse disaster relief units are already in Texas to help residents as they continue to struggle with rain, flooding, and destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey. Soon we will have a total of five of these tractor trailers in the state, setting up volunteer bases around Victoria, Rockport/Portland, Galveston/Santa Fe, and two in Houston.
URGENT: Thousands of volunteers will be needed for months to come. Please go to Samaritan’s Purse’s Volunteer Network to sign up and get the latest information, which we will update as more details become available.
World Vision is positioned and equipped to respond to disasters across the United States. Hurricane Harvey is the most recent emergency causing extreme flooding and damage through parts of Texas and World Vision is responding by partnering with churches to provide vital supplies and support.
When disaster strikes, World Vision is often one of the first organizations to respond. Our relief workers connect with partners – including churches – in affected regions to help hard-hit communities. We are continually preparing for the next disaster by equipping our field sites and partners to help those affected by tornadoes, floods, storms, wildfires, and other disasters across the country.
World Vision also stays long after disasters have faded from the headlines, in order to help communities rebuild.
