A projected 12 million people have been impacted by this category 4 hurricane. Twenty-eight people have died and thousands are stranded due to Houston’s catastrophic flooding. No drinking water, no electricity, and no food have created life-threatening conditions.
NALC and the HARP Mission volunteers are providing the manpower to help hundreds of these families. The HARP Mission serves southeast Ohio in non-disaster times, providing material goods, home repairs, and job training to low income families. When a disaster strikes, NALC volunteers are ready to ship emergency supplies from the national warehouse in Caldwell. These are items that are not easily available in impacted communities.
