TBM Disaster Relief meets Hurricane Laura needs

by John Hall on August 28, 2020 in News

TBM Disaster Relief is meeting needs of people impacted by Hurricane Laura.

As of Friday, Aug. 28, a TBM Chainsaw Unit from Orange is working locally cutting and removing broken limbs and fallen trees from the storm. They will be joined by a TBM feeding team and a TBM shower/laundry unit from Belton, which was en route on Aug. 28. 

Two additional chainsaw teams will join the effort over the weekend, one from Collin County and one from Kingsland Baptist Church in Katy. 

In San Antonio, TBM’s Texans on Mission volunteers are distributing boxes of food in partnership with the Red Cross to people who evacuated as a result of Hurricane Laura.

“Hurricane Laura has changed lives all across the region,” TBM Chief Executive Officer Mickey Lenamon said. “Our volunteers are delivering help, hope and healing to the hurting. Whether we’re cutting down a tree or providing a meal, we want people to know God loves them.”
