Your Harvey Stories
We would love to capture some of your stories from this event. Whether you flooded or volunteered, please share with us your personal experience using the form below.
Update Your current Needs
If you still have Harvey-related needs, please let us know. Although we cannot meet every need, we would like to help where we can. Someone will be in touch soon by either phone or email.
There are many ways to help!
We are no longer sending out work crews. The needs of our Harvey families are shifting from cleanup to other types of help, and we are constantly evaluating how and where volunteers are needed. Let us know how you can help by completing the form below.
If you are still interested in joining a work crew, we suggest you contact Samaritan's Purse. It takes 48 hours to be approved, but they will be able to assign you to a clean-up crew.
We need people to pick up and deliver frozen casseroles to those affected by Harvey. Use our new Caring Casseroles Delivery sign-up below to let us know of your availability. Pickups and deliveries take place on Mondays, between 12:00 and 3:00 PM.
Ted Meyer will manage a long-term initiative to pray for our MDPC families and surrounding communities. Our hope is to have a dedicated team to pray, both in an organized and independent fashion, and supplement that effort with personal touches (i.e. handwritten notes, etc). We would love to have volunteers that are called to this ministry be able to sign up on the Harvey website!
Give to our harvey relief fund
If you would like to make a monetary donation to our Harvey relief fund, please use the link below. One hundred percent of the funds will be used to directly benefit those affected by the storm.
Important Notice about fema assistance
It seems that the amount of dollars that our area will receive from FEMA is affected by the number of volunteer hours that are logged. Please go in and log your hours using FEMA's form, and help raise the level of assistance that our families and our area will receive. This article will explain more fully.
