Adding to my previous post How To Help Texas Wildfire Victims from last week, Moms Against Hunger has joined the many organizations and individuals with boots (and heels) on the ground helping my fellow Texans in their greatest time of need.  ht @SarahInTx for the link!

Please consider sharing the information received below and making a donation, if possible.

May God Bless all those who have been directly affected by the wildfires and may rain visit us all soon.  Thank you for your continued support!


My Good Friend, 

We desperately need your help to feed thousands of Texas residents who are displaced and have lost their homes to the wildfires that are raging across the state. 

Moms Against Hunger and our 60 volunteers are working distribution lines that are open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day to provide food, water, juice, and toiletries to Magnolia residents who are watching and waiting to find out if their homes have been consumed by fire or if they were spared. 

Most residents have already been out of their homes for five days; some know that they have lost their homes and are homeless; and many are staying at local shelters, with family members, or are living inside their vehicles. 

What they need most are the basic essentials that people use every day – tooth brushes, toothpaste, toilet paper, paper towels, diapers, baby wipes, water, juice boxes, headache medicine, Imodium, and even coloring books for children who are not in school. 

FEMA is not on the ground and the Red Cross is not providing meals for firefighters or the displaced. Moms Against Hunger is here, and we are working with local church ministries to help them organize distribution lines and provide them with several days worth of food, water, and necessities. 

When you have lost everything, being able to eat a meal is a comfort and a blessing.

As firefighters continue to battle the infernos that are raging across the state, we are doing what we can help them and the families who are in need. We have already sent all of the socks we had to the firefighters who have been standing in water with wet feet for days now. In addition, we continue to work to keep nerves calm while residents wait to find out what has happened to their homes–parents are anxious, but are trying to keep their children from being afraid. 

We know what we need to do to help, but we need your generous donations to do so. We need funding so we can buy supplies for firefighters – masks, shovels, sunscreen and hand wipes. We also need food, water and supplies for the short-term use of shelters. 

Every day, residents wait behind police checkpoints in the ash and smoke-filled air, watching the devastation and the helicopters that continue to dump tons of water on the raging wildfires that look as though they will never stop burning. 

We are fortunate that we have been able to help so many families, but our supplies are diminishing and we need your help! No one else is here to help, it’s just Americans helping Americans right now. 

So far, we’ve been able to provide meals for 1,500 firefighters each day – meeting them at their checkpoints during every rotation. And on Monday, we will be expected to take meals to 2,200 firefighters, but we are running low on everything that we need to provide for the firefighters and the displaced. 

Helping those who are in need is what Christ would want His followers to do. 

We are doing everything we can to provide help to everyone in the community, but we have an emergency on our hands and we desperately need your financial contribution to continue to do God’s work by helping those who are in need.

Your donation will help provide meals to the firefighters, those who are working at the command centers, and help to feed Texans who are displaced and have no home to return to. 

During this disaster, a meal, cold water, and a toothbrush and toothpaste are genuine luxuries. These are simple items, but they make a world of difference in the lives of those who have lost their homes – and those who are fighting to saves lives by battling the fires. 

Will you help to provide one of the 2,200 meals that Moms Against Hunger is giving to the firefighters; and help fund our efforts to distribute food, water, baby items and toiletries to Texas residents who are displaced or homeless? Your gift WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of thousands of people.

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. I John 3:17-18
