CNE CARES: HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF

We are all deeply saddened by the scenes of suffering on the Southern Coast of Texas and Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Compassion New England embraces the obligation to coordinate efforts and collaborate with those who are already strategically positioned to support the immediate and long term task of rebuilding the lives of those devastated by the unprecedented flooding in this vast region of the United States.
Fred Rogers said, “When I was a boy I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, look for the helpers, you will always find people who are helping.” We urge you to join our team of helpers.

WHAT IS CNE DOING NOW?


1) We are connecting with national and local Houston relief efforts to allow for you to give financially.

The need is huge in Houston, so EVERY cent that you give goes right to amazing organizations making an impact in Houston. Absolutely nothing is used for our administrative cost. Our financial support goes in two directions:
• We support “Convoy of Hope.” Until September 6 Walmart will match twice the amount given to “Convoy of Hope.” They are a national organization with warehouses and a fleet of trucks. They were on site in the Houston Texas area within hours of the storm’s devastation.
• We give to well vetted smaller local organizations in and around Houston that serve populations unserved by the large national disaster relief groups.


2) We are planning a “feet-on-the-ground” relief trip.

When the citizens of the disaster are ready, work crews will be needed for clean up, humanitarian care and rebuilding. Both skilled and unskilled workers are going to be needed. We look forward to coordinating local efforts to restore the region. If you are on our CNE helpers alert list we will contact you via phone, text or email when needs arise that require your assistance. We will also send regular updates of what will be ever changing needs.
