Hurricane Response

Hurricane Harvey: How Can You Help?

 You can prayPlease pray for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Please pray for officials to make the best decisions in the coming weeks and months ahead. Please pray for those who will be responding to the disaster once cleanup begins. The situation in Texas is simply overwhelming; pray for those who strive to be the hands and feet of God as they offer comfort and relief and begin the rebuilding process.

 You can give. Make your check out to UBC and designate it for Harvey Flood Relief.

You can make the biggest difference right now by making a financial contribution. When your gift is combined with others, we can provide exponentially more relief. Furthermore, all donations designated for Hurricane Harvey will be used to maximize the benefit to the individuals and families affected by the storm. One-hundred percent of your financial gifts will help disaster response volunteers obtain materials and supplies, food and water, equipment operations, pay for onsite operation expenses, and much more. The BGAV does not retain any funds for overhead or staff administrative costs.

 You can fill a Flood Bucket or Hygiene Kit.

Flood Buckets

Hygiene Kits

Hygiene kits are a great way to help residents affected by disaster so that they can take care of basic, daily needs. Assemble the following items in a 1-gallon Ziploc plastic bag. Make sure the bag will close easily.

  • Facial tissue
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • Washcloth
  • Comb/brush
  • Shaving cream
  • Razor
  • Toothbrush

Both Flood Buckets and Hygiene kits can be filled and returned to UBC. We will deliver them to Richmond so that they can be distributed wherever they are most needed.
