We-Haul for Harvey

We have an immediate need to respond to. In an effort to maximize impact, we will be donating items, not dollars, for Hurricane Harvey relief. In conjunction with partner churches in south Texas, we will be shipping items directly to our compassionate distribution center in Houston. We are asking that you bring supplies to GatheringPoint, where we will pack a U-Haul to send directly to Houston.  

Please pack your Home and Family Needs in a cardboard box and pack your Cleanup Supplies in a 5-gallon bucket and bring to GatheringPoint on Sunday, September 3, or Sunday, September 10.  The drop-off location for Sunday, September 3, is in the Guest Services area.
