Texas Baptist Men disaster relief volunteers are meeting needs of people impacted by Hurricane Laura and beyond.
A TBM chainsaw crew from Orange is working locally, cutting and removing broken limbs and fallen trees from the storm. They will be joined by a TBM feeding team and a TBM shower/laundry unit from Belton, which is en route Aug. 28.
Two additional chainsaw teams will join the effort this weekend, one from Collin County and from Kingsland Baptist Church in Katy.
In San Antonio, TBM’s Texans on Mission volunteers are distributing boxes of food in partnership with the Red Cross to people who evacuated as a result of Hurricane Laura.
“Hurricane Laura has changed lives all across the region,” TBM Chief Executive Officer Mickey Lenamon said.
“Our volunteers are delivering help, hope and healing to the hurting. Whether we’re cutting down a tree or providing a meal, we want people to know God loves them.”
