Help for Victims of Hurricane Harvey
We’ve watched in disbelief the flooding that has taken place in Texas all this week– and continues. It will be months and, in some cases, years before all will be back to “normal,” if it ever will be. It was dangerous to drive under an overpass if there was any torrential rainfall, let alone 52 inches at one time! It is heartbreaking to consider the devastation and the millions who have been displaced as well as the lives lost.
It would be difficult for us up here in Pennsylvania to go down to Houston to help, but we can support trustworthy ministries who can and, in some cases, are even there now.
1.) Franklin Graham’s Samaritans Purse already has boots on the ground.
3.) Dr. Peg Luksik, President of Founded on Truth Ministry, has announced an effort to help the children impacted by Hurricane Harvey:
Founded on Truth is establishing a separate fund, from which EVERY PENNY will be spent to provide those children with the things that children need.
We are working with folks on the ground in Texas to ensure a quick and efficient distribution of all items.
You can participate in the following ways:
- Send cash donations to Founded on Truth Harvey Children’s Fund
- Send your physical gift from this list:
- NEW stuffed animals (if they are used, we will have to discard them) – leave the tag on so we will know that it is new
- Children’s books (new or used in good condition)
- Crayons, markers or colored pencils
- Coloring books
- Jigsaw puzzles
- Dolls and/or action figures (same rules as stuffed animals)
- Building blocks (e.g.,Lego’s)
- Board games
- toy cars and trucks
- Please do NOT send balls or electronic toys. In the current conditions, they are not practical.
The address is:
