01 Sep Hurricane Harvey Relief
Hello Springs Family,
Hurricane Harvey has brought a lot of devastation to Houston and the surrounding areas. Many people have lost everything and their needs are great. Many of these families have immediate needs such as food, clothes, toiletry items, and cleaning supplies. Many families will still be in need of help for many months to come and can't even imagine what those needs might be as time passes on.
This devastation has hit close to home for our family. Both my husband and I grew up in the Houston area and we spent the first 25 years of our marriage raising our family there. We moved to the New Braunfels area almost 2 years ago with 4 of our children. We have 2 children who have careers and still live in the Houston Area. (They are doing fine) Our hearts break for all of our friends and family that have been affected by these floods.
I would like to help by organizing relief efforts here at the Springs.
Our local New Braunfels Food Bank and Salvation Army are contributing to meeting basic and immediate needs - We would like to help them in their efforts.
You can take items directly to the NB Food Bank or Salvation Army or you can bring things to Mckenna on Sunday and I will make sure they get to the Food Bank and Salvation Army.
Please make sure that all items are new (not used). It is my understanding that the Health Department will not allow distribution of used items.
It will be an honor to organize and serve along side of you in the months to come as we help to provide some relief to those who are in need.
