We are now sending teams out on an as needed basis. Please follow the link above to submit your name and contact information. Someone will email you when we have a site and need, and you can respond if you are able to help.
We have flood buckets with cleaning supplies for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Stop by the office to pick one up. We also have some clothing and canned goods, please call the church for an appointment.
Thank you for your continued support for Flood Recovery at Lakewood UMC. We are responding to needs as they develop, but the need in our immediate area is declining. We are looking at ways to help with areas further out; partnering with local churches and helping families in need.
We are transitioning to long-term recovery and this process will take some time to accomplish. The rebuilding in our area will continue over the months and years ahead. The recovery process will include construction, hosting teams in our facility, and partnering with other local churches.
Here are ways that you can continue to help:
- Re-register as a volunteer for a work team; we have a new volunteer database. If you registered before September 14, or have not registered yet, please sign up at the red link at the top of the page.
- Donate to the LUMC Harvey Disaster Relief Fund
- Continue to respond to requests via social media or email for materials, food, or supplies as needs arise.
- Commit to pray for 1) the community, 2) families in recovery and 3) the Church for wisdom, guidance and resources to effectively respond in Christ.
If you have questions, or know of someone in need, please contact LUMCHarveyRecovery@gmail.com.
Thank you Lakewood!
