Event Details

Rockport Texas took a direct hit from Hurricane Harvey. Property was destroyed. Lives are in disarray. Families need help. We are assembling a group of 30 friends and neighbors to go down to the area to do clean up work. We leave Dallas on Thursday 9/28 in the late afternoon and return Sunday 10/1 mid afternoon.

 We will volunteer with Samaritan's Purse, a well regarded international disaster relief organization. They currently have a backlog of over 300 work order requests. They provide tools, supplies, and leadership.

Our volunteer hours will generate an estimated $20,000  in federal funds from FEMA for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

How can you participate? We need volunteers to go do the work. We need donations to fund the expedition.  Any excess funds will go to the victims directly.

Please donate what you can. Please join us as a volunteer.

Please note Eventbrite will charge a credit card processing fee that will be disclosed before you commit.
