Harvey - Operation SAFE Houston

  • by HAUL
  • Friday, September 01, 2017

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As we move forward in the recovery of our great city, please know that the Houston Area Urban League is here to provide help and hope to those in need. 

We are responding in the Shelters, at Recovery Centers, and are in discussion with local and national leaders to assist in recovery. A trillion gallons of water fell from the sky beginning last Saturday. Since August, 29th your Houston Area Urban League has been assisting residents throughout the city. We are operational; our departments of youth development, housing counseling, workforce and small business development and health outreach are intact and providing service. In addition to our normal functions, we are providing resource assistance, volunteer guidance, and client safety checks. Our staff and volunteers have access to referral information, and are doing safety check outreach to our clients and others. 
As part of our efforts, we will be accepting new donations of the following items:
Socks (adult and children)
Active Wear (comfort clothing like sweats)
Feminine Hygiene Products and other toiletries’
Everyday essentials (underwear for children and adults)

These Donations can be delivered to the Houston downtown location at 1301 Texas. Local Shelters will be monitored and deliveries made daily by the Urban League Young Professional and GUILD auxiliaries and other volunteers and staff.

We welcome your support as we work to help our great city return to being Houston Strong while we continue “Empowering Communities and Changing Lives.”

Judson W. Robinson III
President & CEO
