Unity Efforts – Harvey 2017
From August 29 - September 30 through our donors and partners we have accepted and distributed:
Even though most were given for Harvey relief in the Houston area, 7,000 pounds of chicken went to Jacksonville Florida and 90,000 pounds of relief supplies are for Puerto Rico relief. (9/29/17)
We are operating a point of distribution and partnership with the city of Houston to support over 150 houses of worship. This includes distribution of over 200 pallets of donated relief supplies from our donors. In addition, we have provided over 60 pallets a combination of food and supplies operating in Pasadena, TX.
We also have been donated three more tractor trailers of relief supplies to support the Pasadena point of distribution. On September 15, we will receive a donation currently being processed for 35k bottles of water to support both houses of worship warehouses in Pasadena, TX distribution sites. Finally, we will support our network of sister agencies that operate two mobile kitchens that we anticipate feeding once shelters close down and survivors are transferred to hotels based on FEMA relief aid, for a minimum of six weeks.
