An Update On How Cottonwood Creek Has Reached Out to the Houston Area Since Hurricane Harvey
In late August of 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Houston, Texas and its surrounding cities. The hurricane caused many deaths and left many homeless. According to the director of FEMA, Harvey is probably the worst disaster that Texas has ever seen.
Cottonwood Creek Church has eagerly stepped up to help those in the Houston area during these desperate times. So far, two shipments of supplies and materials have been sent to Houston.
The first shipment was a partnership with Collin Baptist Association and Parkway Hills Baptist Church in Plano. A truck was sent with ten pallets of goods, such as diapers, water bottles, and other items that Cottonwood Creek has been collecting. Those items were then delivered to Second Houston.
The second truck was sent with six pallets of materials in partnership with Engaged Partners which was sent through Manna Worldwide. Ryan Jones took an 18-wheeler and 4 different churches filled it with supplies. They then went to Houston North West.
Cottonwood Creek has provided different opportunities to reach out and help those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. While the Cottonwood family looks forward to going down to serve, there are other ways for those to help out that are unable to go, through prayer, donating, and giving items.
