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.

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.
