Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) is partnering with Greater Port Arthur churches, newly formed Port Arthur long-term recovery team, Help I Am Hurting, greater Austin Churches, ABBA, Christ Together Austin, Spirit 105.9, Emmis Austin Radio Broadcasting Company and Operation Blessing International to organize a massive cleanup effort in the greater Port Arthur area over three weekends. Currently, there are over 1,000 homes that still need to be cleaned up (mucked-out). ADRN is hoping for over a 1,000 volunteers per weekend to make a substantial impact in the community.
“What does it look like for one city to partner with another city impacted by disaster? I believe what greater Austin Churches and Port Arthur churches are doing together is nothing short of miraculous! What Hurricane Harvey has done to the Port Arthur area is far too big and extensive for even one community to handle. It will take a city like Austin to help another city like Port Arthur to see the city restored,” says Daniel Geraci, Executive Director for ADRN
ADRN is working with Operation Blessing International, who was designated by the Mayor of Port Arthur to provide leadership for the cleanup efforts in Port Arthur. ADRN is asking the citizens of greater Austin to Join the efforts by signing up TODAY, by telling friends, family and co-workers for one or more of the following weekends:
December 1st – December 3rd
December 8th – December 10th
January 19th – January 21st
