Many people have been devastated by Hurricane in Texas Florida and parts of the east coast. We’ve identified a couple ways you can serve and support these ministries that are on the ground in the impacted areas.
Convoy of Hope is helping Haiti with 1 million meals staged and more en route. They are already working with local partners in Cuba to identify their greatest needs. The Bahamas and parts of South Florida brace for Hurricane Irma and their disaster relief teams are ready to respond. Click here to help: Convoy of Hope
The Salvation Army is already in Texas providing physical, emotional and spiritual care to survivors and relief workers. Now their disaster teams from across the country are mobilizing to help the areas affected by Irma. The Salvation Army will remain in communities impacted by this terrible storm, supporting long-term disaster recovery efforts and providing on-going assistance to those in need.

Samaritan’s Purse U.S. Disaster Relief has been quite busy in Texas over the past two years. They have responded nine times since the beginning of 2015, six of those involving floods.
