Miracle Relief Collaboration League, MRCL, is hosting a supply drive for disabled and elderly victims of Hurricane Michael. The event will take place at Spring Woods High School in Houston, Texas this weekend. The drive will be going on Saturday, November 10 from 9am-6pm and Sunday, November 11 from 10am-4pm.
Hurricane Michael was the strongest storm of the 2018 season, leaving dozens dead and thousands displaced or without a home. Starting over is never easy, especially for elderly people or those with special needs.
MRCL is doing their part to support these people by coordinating the supply drive and all transportation logistics to get the donations to their destinations. The requested donations are household items such as canned goods with pop tops, plates, utensils, blankets, pillows, towels, soap, toilet paper and more.
“It wasn’t long ago we were finding supplies to get people right here in Texas back into their homes after Hurricane Harvey. We’re still working on that, but there are also many more who need support after this seasons hurricanes,” says Executive Director Kathryn Ingerly. “We are privileged to be working with the people of Texas who are selflessly giving to help others. Even while Texas is still recovering, when we find out about tragedies we are pulled into action to help.”
