We are so fortunate that Houston was spared from the destruction of Hurricane Laura, but Southeast Texas and Louisiana did not fare well and were hit with a Category 4 storm. Are you looking for ways to lend a helping hand to our neighbors? Here’s how you can give back and make difference for those affected by the Hurricane Laura. 

Houston Food Bank

The Houston Food Bank

Houstonians can help volunteer sort product and pack boxes at their center, located at 535 Portwall St, Houston, Texas 77029. Houston Food Bank ensures that they are taking necessary precautions to keep their volunteers safe from COVID-19. Everyone entering the building must have temperatures taken, masks are required and social distancing is practiced through the building. Sign up to volunteer online or donate here.

Lakewood Church

Lakewood Church is currently accepting donations like water bottles, baby wipes, baby formula and diapers for distribution in the affected areas of Southeast Texas and Louisiana. Drop-off will begin at 9 a.m. from Thursday through Sunday at 3700 Southwest Freeway, Houston Texas, 77002.

American Red Cross

The Red Cross is already headed to areas affected by Hurricane Laura, so the best way to help is with a monetary donation. You can make a $10 donation by texting LAURA to 90999. Other donation options include online giving at redcross.org or by calling 800-RED-CROSS. You can also check for potential volunteer opportunities.
