[ARCHIVED] Westminster Presbyterian Church Is Accepting Donations for Hurricane Harvey Victims Through 9/15

Westminster Presbyterian Church Harvey Donation Drive

Westminster Presbyterian Church (WPC), located at 94 Tindall Road in Middletown, has set up a trailer donation drive on its Great Lawn to help Hurricane Harvey victims. Church member Jim Davis, who owns Whirl Construction, was the driving force behind the project when he offered to put his company’s largest equipment trailer on the WPC Great Lawn with a large sign asking the community to provide specific relief supplies (see Donation Drive List below).

Donations will be accepted through Friday, September 15th at noon. There is a designated parking area near the trailer for drop off. WPC requests that you leave donations under the two tents near the trailer. After hours donations may be dropped under the sheltered roof area near the sanctuary.

The trailer will be bound for the Harvey-devastated town of Rockport, Texas on Friday, September 15th. WPC's Reverend Joseph Hein has been coordinating relief efforts with Reverend John Roberts of Grace Presbyterian Church in Corpus Christi. Members of his congregation will receive and distribute the relief supplies.

For additional information and regular updates about the WPC Help4Houston Project, as well as the drive they are planning for Hurricane Irma victims, visit the church’s web site or Facebook page.
