Disaster struck on August 25th when Hurricane Harvey brought flooding, destruction of homes, and loss of loved ones to the Houston area and its surrounding cities.

 

“Harvey is estimated to have caused up to $160 billion in damages, impacting more than 100,000 homes and making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S history,” said USA Today reporter, Rick Jervis.

 

Throughout this time of sorrow and loss, the Houston area has shown strength by coming together in a time of need to help each other and continue to rebuild their community, their home.

 

Doing their part, Fort Bend ISD has supported many of their community partners who are ready to volunteer their time to provide assistance and collect supplies for people in need, and they are in need of more people to get involved. Many of these organizations are open to and encourage more volunteers to help them contribute to the Hurricane Harvey Relief.

 

  1. Second Mile Mission Center: This organization is open to all donations as well as volunteers who can provide financial assistance to those financially affected by the storm. They are especially accepting food, personal items, and clinical items. They are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00am-7:00pm. This building is located 1135 US-90 ALT Missouri City, TX 77489, and they can be contacted at (281)261-9199.

 

  1. Blackhouse Coffee and Kitchen: While this organization is especially requesting  clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and school supplies, there are no donation restrictions for what they are willing to take in. They are open Monday – Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm, and can be located at 611 Jackson Street Richmond, TX 77469. They may also be contacted at (281)766-4866.

 

  1. East Fort Bend Human Needs: East Fort Bend is open to any donations. Although, main priority is to collect food and personal items as well as volunteers who are able to provide financial assistance. They accept donations and need help on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10:00am-1:30pm and Wednesdays from 6:00pm-8:00pm. They are located at 435 Stafford Run Stafford, TX 77477 and can be contacted at (281)261-1006.

 

  1. Word of Restoration International Church: This church is acting as another donation center and is asking specifically for clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and school supplies but is not turning down other donations. They are providing hot meals which start at 12:30pm. They are open Monday-Friday from 9:00am-7:00pm and on Saturdays from 9:00am-2:00pm. The church is located at 7620 FM 521 Road Rosharon, TX 77583, and they can be contacted at (281)531-5930.

 

  1. Together We Stand Church: This church is specifically requesting clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and school supplies, but they are open to all donations. They are open Monday-Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am-2:00pm. This church is located at 1432 Texas Parkway Missouri City, TX 77489 and can be contacted at (281)403-0373.
