Churches, groups and individuals can give people affected by Tropical Depression Imelda an extra reason to celebrate Thanksgiving this year by providing them safe, secure housing through Texas Baptist Men (TBM) Rebuild.
Participants in TBM Rebuild efforts from Nov. 10-22 will help individuals and families with the highest needs, including the elderly and single parents. Volunteer teams will install drywall and make homes safe for residents.
TBM will provide the materials for the projects as well as a place for volunteers to stay and meals for them to eat.
“Imelda devastated Southeast Texas,” said David Wells, TBM associate director of disaster relief. “As we responded with feeding and mud out efforts, we identified significant needs that we believe we can meet. Together, we can make sure families have a safe, secure place to celebrate Thanksgiving.”
In the wake of the storm, TBM delivered help, hope and healing in the form of thousands of meals as well as cleaning out many homes. In recognition of the effort, the city of Nederland recently declared Oct. 28 Texas Baptist Men’s Day.
