HURRICANE IDA: SUPPLY DRIVE

INVITE YOUR CONGREGATION TO DONATE SUPPLIES.

Houston Responds is building partnerships with organizations and congregations in the areas worst hit. One of their initial needs we can help meet is basic supplies. Drop-off sites are being organized through our coalitions and their congregations to receive supply donations and get them to the communities in need. When inviting your members to participate, please communicate the following key information:

WHAT SUPPLIES ARE NEEDED

We have put together a list of the most needed supplies that will accepted by our contacts in Louisiana.

WHERE TO BRING DONATIONS

Your congregation can collect donations at your facility and then have them delivered to one of the drop-off sites or you can direct your members to take donations directly to the drop-off site closest to your community.

The need for supplies will likely continue for several weeks or months. We will continue to coordinate this supply effort until our disaster relief contacts in Louisiana let us know that it is no longer needed.

CAN YOU BE A DROP-OFF SITE?

If your facility can serve as a drop-off site for collecting supply donations from other congregations in your area or if you are already serving as a drop-off site for another organization and would like to be added to our drop-off site list, please COMPLETE THE BRIEF FORM HERE.

Scheduling Delivery to Warehouse

If you are serving as a drop-off site and would like to bring your collected supplies to the warehouse for distribution in Louisiana, please schedule a day and time for your delivery. SCHEDULE DELIVERY
