How to Help Texas Flood Victims
One of the great things about Texas is how we all step up to help our neighbors. Residents in Houston are in need due to flooding that has left many without the comfort and safety of their homes. If you have been wondering how you and your family can help those in need, we have put together this list for reference.
One of the things that people always need in disaster situations is food. Several food banks are asking for volunteers and donations.
The Houston Food Bank is located at 535 Portwall Street. You can register as a volunteer online or by calling 713-547-8604. Donations of cash are also needed at this time. You can donate through houstonfoodbank.org.
Montgomery County Food Bank is asking anyone who is able to do so to donate $10. Donations can be made through mcfoodbank.org. You can also text MCFB to 45777.
Volunteers are desperately needed to staff shelters, distribute food and service those in need. If you are interested in volunteering, go to redcross.org/volunteer. The following is a list of shelters that have been established.
- Johnston Middle School
- Jersey Village Baptist Church
- MO Campbell Education Center
- Rosehill United Methodist Church
- St. John’s Church-Northwest
- East Montgomery County Senior Center
- First United Methodist Church Conroe
- South County Community Center
- Royal High School
All shelters are open around the clock and provide a warm, safe place to stay. People in need can also find meals and emotional support as necessary.
