The warehouse in Bastrop is full; they cannot take anything else right now. A warehouse has been established to amass donations at 610 North Austin, Georgetown, TX. Call 512-331-2200 for a list of what is needed before collecting and delivering donations. They will tell you what is needed and how it must be packaged. They are not taking any clothes!
The TX wildfires continue to grow. The situation in Bastrop is very fluid. Over 1300 homes have been destroyed. About 50% did not
have insurance. Volunteers have only been allowed into a small area until the firefighters have the fire under control. As soon as we get word when and where volunteers are needed, we’ll let you know. There is also hotline for volunteers and updates: 512-331-2600.
Just got back from week in Joplin with team of 13 from N TX – great trip! The team painted, sided, built, shingled, sheetrocked, and cleaned up – had to be flexible! Lots of cleaning and rebuilding going on but much remains. Hopefully we can take several more N TX Presbytery teams to support the rebuilding and Christ the King PCA’s outreach. Thanks to all who prayed for us and supported the trip.
