A week ago floods ravaged through some parts of Austin, devastating homes and putting many lives on hold. The hardest hit area was a poverty-stricken neighborhood in the Onion Creek area.
For the past week the families in this area have received little support, many don’t have insurance and have no idea how they will recover. Families have been living in their ruined houses trying to make do, but because of safety hazards they are being turned out of their own homes and don’t have any place to go.
Today the Mission U-Too team is packing up and heading over to Austin to offer support to this community. We need your help and we need your prayers. Here are a few ways you can practically help:
Update: These are some items we are currently in great need of—Pancake mix, Eggs, Tortillas, Cheese (shredded and sliced), Butter, Lettuce, Pickles, Onions, Buns (hotdog and hamburger).
Volunteer – Not only do we need food to serve, we need people to help serve. We are setting up right in front of the Onion Creek neighborhood off of East William Cannon near Crossroads Christian House—5201 E William Cannon Dr, Austin, TX 78744—and will be there until Sunday. If you have any questions please contact Jonah at firstname.lastname@example.org or 832-524-5614 today.
Update: We are now set up in the neighborhood of Onion Creek at 7444 Onion Creek Drive if you want to come and help us serve.
Prayer – Pray, pray, pray…we need you to pray for the families affected by the flooding as they are assessing the damaging and figuring out their next steps. Also pray for Mission U-Too and the leadership that God would use us to share His love.
We appreciate your support as we serve the community of Onion Creek in Austin. We know that God will show up.
