Distraught by the many reports coming from our friends and contributors struggling to weather the terrible storm in Houston. There are a number of organizations that are already hard at work organizing the relief (Red Cross, Salvation Army, Episcopal Relief & Development, WorldVision, etc) but any readers interested in more specific ways of helping, here are two on-the-ground opportunities:

  1. Submerged St Thomas in Houston. Water has risen substantially since these were taken.

    St. Thomas Episcopal Church and School in Houston, the site of our 2014 conference (rector David Browder is a dear friend and former Mboard member), has been hit particularly hard, as has the neighborhood surrounding. To donate to their relief effort, click here.

  2. Holy Spirit Episcopal Church where Josh Condon (husband of Sarah) serves, has also suffered quite a bit of damage, especially in their immediate community and congregation. You can give here.
