UPDATE: CitiHope Relief and Development had over 34,000 lbs of construction materials sent to Texas to help provide relief for a few families effected by Hurricane Harvey. Donations and materials continue to come in from many different individuals, churches and businesses. Too many to list now but we will provide an update once the dust settles on the generosity of these amazing supporters.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the wettest tropical hurricane in United States history, many coastal regions along the Gulf Coast have a long road ahead of them. One of the hardest hit places was Rockport, Texas, where Harvey’s eye – along with wind gusts of over 130 mph – left many residents of this small town with catastrophic damage and little hope.
CitiHope is committed to helping Rockport’s families in need. Along with our partner organizations (FOI Laboratories, JA Wilwert Custom Carpentry, Calvary Church Quakertown), our team will begin to mobilize this fall. This process will begin with a sight evaluation and needs assessment trip, meeting Rockport residents and local officials, and will culminate with CitiHope volunteer groups traveling to Rockport to assist our core construction team with the projects we carefully and strategically select.
Please consider giving towards our relief efforts in Rockport below. If you are interested in traveling to Rockport as a volunteer, please email Austin Landes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
