City coordinating with Tarrant cities for Hurricane Harvey assistance

Thursday, September 7 2017 11:00 AM

Like its residents, the City of Colleyville has the people affected by Hurricane Harvey in its mind and hearts.

Colleyville has assisted at the Joint Emergency Operations Center. Securing resources for dialysis patients, shelter operations, and fuel concerns. Two Colleyville firefighters are part of a regional Task Force. They have been assisting with cleanup and responding to fire calls in several affected cities. Police officers and firefighters that remain in Colleyville are assisting other agencies with public safety needs as most cities have deployed assets to South Texas. Colleyville Police Corporal Sandy Scott has been deployed as a medic with the National Guard.

What you can do

The best way to assist the people affected by Hurricane Harvey is through financial donations to the charity of choice. Emergency management officials encourage people to verify support organizations and that their monetary donations are going toward relief efforts. Officials say soft goods may be needed later, but cash is most helpful now.

For those interested in volunteering, the city of Fort Worth encourages people to register through Voly.org.

Several Colleyville ministerial organizations are collecting and organizing relief efforts.

Bear Valley Community Church is packing relief supplies for those who are still here as evacuees. Walmart gift cards will be collected to send to a partner church in Houston for them to hand out.  A team will go down to work on the rebuilding process.

First United Methodist Church of Colleyville is collecting items for cleaning buckets to donate to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) to aid in the recovery after Hurricane Harvey. People can assist in one of three ways: 1) Donate items from the list below; 2) Donate $65 for one cleaning bucket; 3) Assemble the cleaning buckets on Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. in the Events Center. A light lunch will be provided for all volunteers. Donations can be delivered to the Events Center at First United Methodist Church of Colleyville (1000 Church St. Colleyville, TX). The list of needed items can be found here.

On Sept. 20, First Baptist Colleyville will be hosting a Pack-A-Bucket event 1,000 for Beaumont. We are also a drop-off location for other organizations that pack these cleanout buckets. For details, to donate, or to participate, go to www.firstcolleyville.com/harvey.

The Colleyville Congregation, and congregations across Dallas-Fort Worth, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been active in Harvey relief efforts, with several drives to donate food and other needed items, and mobilizing multiple teams totaling more than 2,000 volunteers to help clean out damaged homes. Opportunities to donate or volunteer can be found at www.JustServe.org. We also partner with the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities, Convoy of Hope, and Adventist Community Services in Houston to provide help for those affected by Harvey.
