Harvey Volunteers Are Needed!
After surveying multiple sites and carefully planning with our partners around Texas, we have been able to identify many locations that need your help. The Texas District, under the direction of Julie Tucker, Director of Disaster Response, will focus relief efforts in the Golden Triangle, which includes the towns of Beaumont and Port Arthur northeast of Houston, and the Coastal Bend, which includes towns like Corpus Christi and Rockport southwest of Houston.

It should only take a few minutes. Once you sign up, you will receive an email confirmation with all the information you will need for you and your team.
