The Red Cross continues to focus on reaching as many people as possible who need our help. Your help is urgently needed to continue to support relief efforts. Getting supplies and meals and water into affected areas is the top priority. Financial donations make the greatest and most immediate impact, helping the Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy.
Disaster recovery & development begins weeks, months and even years after the initial response, working through our local churches, associations and Long Term Recovery Teams. Texas Baptist Disaster Recovery provides a holistic approach to community development, working with disaster survivors throughout the long term restoration process.
Note: While Baylor University is supportive of the relief efforts currently being conducted by these organizations, Baylor is not affiliated with them.
