Attack Poverty Responds to the Texas Winter Storm
Attack Poverty will be serving those impacted by the Texas Winter Storm by meeting their basic needs. Even in uncertain times, it continues to be our mission to strengthen under-resourced communities.
It takes all of us to make things happen. As Attack Poverty, we're used to adapting and pivoting to meet the needs of communities and we need your support.
We’re anticipating high need for home repair, assistance with basic needs like food and water, and even serving families with children as families try to figure out how to move forward while their children are at home in virtual schooling.
With the devastation we’ve seen so far over the past few days, we know this will be costly, but we also know you all will come alongside us as we serve.
We appreciate your prayers and donations in support of our neighbors.
- We know God is with us and will provide for us. He will not leave us. Brandon, references Zephenia 3:17 as a word of encouragement.
- If you can volunteer, we need your support as we walk alongside others.
- If you can support us financially, we need your support to keep this going. It takes $200,000 a month to keep us going.
- Our Attack Poverty Disaster Recovery team is getting ready to mobilize to support communities.
- Today we challenge you, reach out to someone today. Help your neighbors, reach out to friends, share resources, and come together. #bettertogether
