Hurricane Harvey Relief Trip October 10/11-10/14

St. Paul Lutheran Church LogoHurricane Harvey Response Trip – 2017 

Trip Date: 10/11 – 10/14

Connecting people to opportunities to serve

St. Paul is partnering with the churches in the Houston area and St. John’s in Orange, California, to bring relief following the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey. We are forming a volunteer team that will travel to Texas to help in the clean-up process. The team will be removing wet drywall and insulation, removing damaged floors, pulling staples, nails, etc. There are also openings for team members that will assist with food distribution or office work. Another trip in November (11/3-11/8 or 11/8 – 11/12) may be possible, we are still working on those details. Please let Mike Hausch know if the November date is a good option for you.
