Mayor's Office Press Release
Community Groups and Houses of Worship Unite for Houston Paying It Forward: Hurricane Michael Donation Drive
October 20, 2018 -- In the spirit of Paying it Forward, Mayor Sylvester Turner is asking Houstonians to donate Hurricane Michael relief supplies.
The Houston Relief Hub and area Houses of Worship will serve as donation collection sites to help provide items to Panama City and Mexico Beach, Florida.
“I have personally spoken with mayors and faith-based representatives on the east coast who say the need is great,” Mayor Turner said. “Houston remembers when communities across the country came to our assistance after Harvey. Therefore, I am asking those who can donate to help with this effort. We will continue to show the world that we are Houston Strong and Houstonians have big hearts.”
Last month, Mayor Turner, the Relief Hub and the U.S. Conference of Mayors successfully coordinated the Pay It Forward Relief Response for Hurricane Florence, sending donations and supplies to the coastal areas.
A list of collection sites is located below. Please also include: St. Monica Catholic Church, 8421 W. Montgomery Rd., from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
In addition to donations, the Hub requests volunteers to assist with coordination, sorting, and loading.
If you can volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the day and time you can help.
Volunteer shifts will be 9 a.m.-Noon, Noon-3 p.m. and 3 p.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
