TROPICAL STORM NICHOLAS:

ANNOUNCEMENT: Our Greater Houston area offices will close today, Monday, September 13th at noon, although our staff will remain connected.

In addition, as Tropical Storm Nicholas makes landfall and continues to move inland towards the Greater Houston Area, we wanted to list a few things for our community to be mindful of:

- Stay aware of flash flooding and hazardous road conditions for the next few days ahead of us. Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. If you do not have to be out in this weather, please stay home. Do not drive through standing water.
- Prepare your home and belongings: Remove all loose debris from your yards and other areas surrounding your home to help control flooding. Park your vehicle(s) away from roads that typically flood.
- Continue to monitor trusted resources for updates such as Eric Berger: Space City Weather

If you need more information on storm preparedness, check out our Attack Poverty Disaster Recovery and our friends at Houston Responds

Hurricane Ida Response: Letter from our CEO, Brandon Baca:

"Dear Friends,
As you are aware, Hurricane Ida moved through the Gulf Coast making landfall as a category 4 Hurricane this past week, greatly impacting many areas in southern Louisiana. This is the fourth recorded disaster declaration for Louisiana in the last 12 months and the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. As a result of this event, we all know that over 1 million people lost power, and many are without access to basic needs, medical assistance, and shelter. Our hearts are heavy for our neighbors. The impact of this event has been devastating for many small towns, and rural areas.."

There you will find a list of collection sites and a list of supplies needed at this time. If your church or organization is interested in becoming a collection site, please e-mail [email protected]

As you may know, our Sundown Super Singers are not able to meet this year due to Covid restrictions. I have decided to continue with my Tastefully Simple fundraiser for them this year to help start next year off with a little more money. We would love for you to help with this either by placing an order, or just by sharing it with your friends and family. The link to the party is https://www.tastefullysimple.com/p/11356948 and the Facebook Group where I am sharing information about Tastefully Simple is https://www.facebook.com/groups/231012998689039.
