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.

Bear Creek Village Donation Drive

Screen Shot 2017-09-26 at 2.36.51 PM

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.

Need More Gatorade


Because all of our mud-out crews are working in intense heat and humidity, we want to make sure we have plenty of Gatorade to keep them hydrated. We need a lot — emphasis on a lot — of Gatorade to take care of those who are here to care for us.

Katy Fellowship is serving as the drop-off center for Gatorade and electrolyte drinks for our first responders and mud-out crews. They are receiving donations from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday.
