Completion set for this year
Hundreds of evacuees were housed in our community--volunteers throughout the area were serving meals, providing bedding and clothing, and offering prayers and support to people that were forced to leave their homes because of a massive hurricane called Rita. For days our community pulled together to help these displaced people. Because of this sheltering operation, the State of Texas had to be more prepared when, and if, another evacuation of this size would ever happen again. Shelters would be built.
