New Shoes for Harvey Evacuees in Austin
If You Could Give a Hurricane Harvey Evacuee a New Pair of Sneakers for Just $6.97, Would You Do It?
We are all aware of the devastation and disruption that Hurricane Harvey caused on the residents of the Texas coast including Houston and many of our Texas communities. It’s in these moments of darkness that the love and compassion of Jesus Christ shines brightest!
The Austin Metro area has been given the assignment to care for 7000 of these men, women and children who’ve been affected to ADRN (Austin Disaster Relief Network – a network of Churches in the Austin and surrounding communities). It has been truly amazing to watch the Church mobilize to support those affected and accept the challenge to care for and minister to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Shelter is being provided. Food and clothing has been pouring in. One thing that is surely needed are a new pair of shoes to start walking on the path of recovery and a new and better chapter in their lives.
The youth ministry at Church of The Springs in Dripping Springs has stepped up to take on the challenge to provide 7,000 pairs of shoes, one for each man, woman, and child. They’re excited to learn that other youth ministries in town now will be joining them.
Costco, in South Austin has been willing to provide us a new pair of white, unisex sneakers for $6.97 each. A Sunday offering covered the first 251 pairs (their complete stock).
Although we are a small church in Dripping Springs we have a youth ministry who understand the unlimited power of faith and unity. With only 6,749 pairs to go we are confident that more people will want to join us to show the love and compassion of Jesus Christ for many who came here with nothing but the clothes on their back and new hope for a better life. We are asking for your participation by giving whatever amount you feel led to give. We need your help.
