Free Christmas Décor – Harvey Housing  Recovery “Pop-Up-Shop”

Saturday, December 16, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Kingsland Baptist Church, 20555 Kingsland Blvd, Katy, TX 77450.

Sponsored by Harvey Housing Recover Project, and the generosity of many people from throughout the Houston area who have made donations, this Christmas “Pop-Up-Shop” will provide (for FREE) new and “gently used” Christmas décor to those families who were affected by the flood.

We know many people lost everything during Harvey, including treasured Christmas memories, Harvey Housing Recovery (HHR)  believes that we all NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS! So we’re going to do all we can to help families and individuals create new ones.

If you were affected by the flood, or know someone in need of a little Christmas, please help us spread the word, by sharing this post on your own FB page, and your neighborhood FB pages, along with any organizations who you may know that are working with those in need.

If you would like to donate Christmas Decorations, wrapping paper, ribbons, lights, garland or any Christmas items you no longer need or use. You may drop them off at main entrance of Kingsland Baptist Church in Katy during normal business hours any day this week, including Friday.

To learn more about HHR, please visit www.harveyhousingrecovery.org

We are happy to partner with any organizations that may also have non-Christmas related items in surplus that they may need help in distributing.

The Bear Creek Village area has over 1,100 of its 1,400 homes flooded and most unliveable.  We are still in the process of clearing and tearing out homes so they can be sprayed for mold and begin drying out for rebuild.

A large community stop and shop will take place this Saturday at Bear Creek Elementary, a Katy ISD school.  Below is a supply list for items that we are looking for to assist the residents.  This area has had no large scale support – just help from local people and churches.

Funding
KCM has been severely impacted by hurricane Harvey, suffering loss of equipment, office furniture, supplies, inventory in the Resale Store, and loss of revenue from the sales at the KCM Resale Store that supports the work of KCM. Despite our losses, we continue to meet the needs of the community as we are displaced and working to rebuild our facilities. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to KCM for operational support. Visit us at www.ktcm.org.

Clothed By Faith Needs You

Although the sun is shining and all looks well in Katy, thousands of families continue to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Many of our local subdivisions look like war zones with debris flanking streets and volunteers working like ants to clean out homes damaged by flood waters. In locations around our community, hundreds of volunteers continue to work at donation drop-off and pick-up locations. The destruction of Harvey unwittingly became the canvas on which the beauty of Jesus continues to be displayed.

Clothed By Faith is just one of many local non-profits that has done an amazing job of helping families that had to evacuate their homes with only a few articles of clothing stuffed into trash bags. Abi Morton, the founder of CBF, and her army of volunteers have served a total of 5,883 of our neighbors over the past nine days. Providing an organized shopping experience, those in need of clothing can get the help they need in a compassionate and dignified way. Because volunteers have worked tirelessly since the storm, they will take Monday as a day of rest.

Clothed By Faith will be open to serve the community at their pop-up store location at Crosspoint Church from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Tuesday through Thursday and from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturday. If you are interested in volunteering, please go to the Clothed By Faith site to register.

Thank you Abi. You and your staff have done an amazing job of leading volunteers to love and serve the people of our community. Clothed By Faith is indeed a Katy treasure.
