Hurricane Harvey hit Texas on August 26th, as a Category 4 and dumped over 20 trillion gallons of water on the state of Texas. A state of emergency was declared in 50 Counties in Texas.
CIA is working in and around Corpus Christi - including the communities of Rockport, Aransas Pass, Bayside and Woodsboro. Please consider making a donation to help our boots on the ground. Volunteer Regsitration is OPEN and we are currently scheduling volunteers through October 31st. We are currently offering residential assistance, including debris removal, gutting/mucking, demolition, and tree work. If you, or someone you know, in the area has been affected and needs the kind of help we are offering, please contact us.
Primary ways you can help:
2. Volunteer. We need lots of people to come and work alongside us. There are a lot of people who need help and we want to help as many as possible, and to do that we need the body of Christ to come together and show the world how Christians live out their faith.
3. Pray. We ask first that you lift up the people in Texas and Louisiana who have been impacted by this storm. We also ask that you pray for our staff, core team, and volunteers as we are working in Texas.
4. Send Supplies. If you would like to send needed supplies to us on the ground, check out our Amazon Deployment Needs list which is updated daily during our deployment with things we need to better serve the community. Also, if you shop through smile.amazon.com Amazon will donate a percentage back to CIA (every purchase, every time, it doesn't have to be for CIA).
