Sheds needed for Harvey and Irma victims
International Disaster and Emergency Services charity is asking for help to fund a Christian-based project to help the victims of the two hurricane ravaged areas of Texas and Florida. Chuck Houk, Minister of the Crossroads Christian Church in Helena, is on the charity board and lives in Helena.
IDES works through Christian Churches and Churches of Christ to help those congregations assist those who are in need in disaster areas. They have seven congregations in Houston and at least four in the Florida area that are already helping people recover from the disaster. The charity works with people that primarily do not have insurance and are getting little timely help from FEMA.
These congregations give help to anyone regardless of their religious affiliation by assisting clean up the day after the disaster.
First responders have discovered that what people need most is underwear, socks, diapers and bedding. Also home owners having to clean up their property are in need of storage sheds for the items they recover but do not have a place put them. The sheds are prepared by Christian youth in Noblesville, Indiana, for shipping to the disaster area and are reassembled by church members at the victim's home.
Thirty sheds were delivered to Houston last week and have 60 more being delivered this week. If you desire to help your gift should be sent to: IDES, 355 Park 32 West Dr, Noblesville, IN 46062, or go to ides.org.
Houk can be contacted at 227-6968 or 431-8823.
