River Oaks Baptist and St. Paul Presbyterian Churches are teaming up to serve in the food pantry. Southwest Emergency Services serves clients in crisis who live in zip codes 77031, 77036, 77072 and 77074 by providing a five day supply of food for people experiencing hunger or food insecurity. Clients can also be referred to other agencies for long-term assistance. The food pantry managers and dedicated volunteers come from local Christian churches in the area.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Czarena Siebert at email@example.com. She can give you the necessary training materials for the varous volunteer positions, or you may show up and shadow an ROBC volunteer. All are welcome, so bring a friend! This is also a fun and rewarding way for young people to earn community service hours.
God's people at ROBC have provided hands-on relief to urgent and immediate needs in our church and in the broader community of our city. You have responded with compassion. We have seen Christ in the storm iin helping hands and loving expressions of care and concern.
There will be other needs in the future; finding housing, rehabilitating damaged homes, food and sustenance. Who know what needs will surface. So that we may continue to respond in loving ways, we have initiated a Harvey Flood Relief Fund. You can give to help others find relief in the midst of their putting their life back together. You can place donations in the offering earmarked for the Harvey Flood Relief Fund.
This storm has affected us all in some way, and has shown us what church really means. Because of that we want to tell our church's stories. Please see our Blog page as our members share their personal stories of how Harvey impacted their families.
