Hurricanes Harvey and Irma Update: THANK YOU for Your Support! Your donations are helping tremendously!

We loaded a 53’ truck with cleaning supplies, hygiene items, baby care products, water, etc. It was delivered to our Volunteers of America Texas distribution center in Houston. We will make another delivery soon as well. We are still accepting donations through September 20 and the requested donation list is below. We are also now accepting donations to help victims of Hurricane Irma in Florida. Thank you again!

There are still thousands of people with flooded or damaged homes who need assistance.

As people are able to return to their homes, there is an abundant need for cleaning supplies and plastic totes for storing items. If you want to help the people of Texas and Florida during this time of stress, there are several agencies working to provide aid. We at Volunteers of America are receiving monetary donations as well as items listed below.

We will continue receiving and transporting donated items through September 20 and will provide an update if that is extended. See list below. Thank you for your support.

Some stories from different volunteers working with us:

Shirley“Ms. Shirley’s health recently put her in the hospital and rehab. EMS has, on multiple occasions, had difficulty getting her in and out of her home.

We prepared an entrance that will remedy this situation. Just in time … she is supposed to arrive home this week.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

SeafarerOn June 17, 2017, a tornado severely damaged the roof of the JCBA Seafarers’ Ministry Building on the east side of the Port of Pascagoula. This EF-1 tornado packed winds measured at 92 mph and is believed to have touched down for approximately 30 seconds.

Volunteers from 5 Jackson County Churches placed a steel roof on the building on July 22. Thanks to the 12 guys who gave their time to meet this urgent need.

Giving Thanks to Our Veterans ...

On Saturday, November 12th, more than 40 volunteers from The Home Depot, Volunteers of America Southeast, and McGill Toolen's baseball team joined San Francisco Giants' starting pitcher and Mobile native Jake Peavy to create a community area at Eagle’s Landing. Eagle's Landing is a transitional housing community for more than 30 formerly homeless veterans. The volunteers created an outdoor community area where veteran residents can socialize.
