Two and a half days after Hurricane Harvey made landfall and dropped more than 2 feet of rain, thousands of people in Houston and along the Gulf Coast have been displaced. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott activated the entire Texas National Guard (Wamsley, NPR News, 2017).
It is estimated that 30,000 people may need shelter, and some 450,000 may qualify for federal flood victim assistance.
TOOTHBRUSHES FOR TODDLERS has prepared several packages to be shipped to the affected areas to be delivered to the shelters. Our first shipment will be sent to Texas Baptist Children’s Home who have a group of volunteers taking supplies to Austin and Houston. www.tbch.org
During this crisis, we ask that if you are able, please consider sending toothbrushes or monetary donations so we may continue to aid the growing number of people needed emergency assistance.
