Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas, on Friday, August 25 as a Category 4 storm with 130 mile per hour winds. The storm is causing widespread flooding and significant damage across southern Texas as the slow moving storm drops several feet of water throughout the region. UCC Disaster Ministries continues to monitor the situation and maintain contact with the South Central Conference and partners as well as federal and state agencies.
UCC Disaster Ministries is already gearing up for our long-term recovery work in the region and your contributions for Harvey survivors means providing community support for holistic recovery, repairing house and home for families and children and restoring dignity for the most vulnerable who have lost everything in the wake of this catastrophic event.
