Helping people affected by Harvey
Along with you, the Mission Arlington® family has been praying for those people affected by the historic storm, for first responders, and for other relief efforts ongoing or just beginning.
Helping those who are already here!
Many families affected by the storm were able to get out ahead of the impact, and they are currently living in our community – either in hotels or with family. Our front room (where we provide emergency assistance) has been full as we respond to the needs.
We have been providing food, clothing, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies to these families along with emergency financial assistance. As you would understand, those affected by the storm are concerned about the well-being of their homes and family members who weren’t able to get out of affected areas. One special need we’ve discovered is fuel for the cars, so that they can get back home, or to return to bring others back here.
What we currently need
We are currently collecting the following items for distribution to affected families:
- Gift Cards which help us provide gasoline
- Socks & underwear;
- towels and washcloths;
- food and clothing;
- pillows, bedding, and school supplies for kids, and
- anything someone might use who has been displaced.
You can bring supplies to 210 W. South St. in Arlington. We are open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We are grateful for you!
As our front room fills every day with people displaced or somehow affected by these historic storms, we find ourselves filled with gratitude for this beautiful community.
We have been able to provide for people, because you have been dropping by or dropping a check in the mail, so that real people experiencing this crisis can have the help that they need to make it another day.
We are grateful for the privilege we have of walking this journey with you.
May the Lord bless each of you as you care for others in need.
