Hurricane Harvey Update
89.5 KVNE has partnered with
East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network in conjunction with several local agencies to help victims of Hurricane Harvey who are residing in East Texas.
Many evacuees are finding shelter in East Texas
and we want to make them feel right at home.
Did you know
there are approximately 1,200 evacuees in Tyler alone?
How can I help the hurricane victims?
To help victims right here in our own backyard, we need these items:
Grocery stores, Walmart, Lowe’s
New socks, underwear, and diapers
All sizes, please!
Please be sure you enter “Harvey” in the comment section when you give an online gift.
And, of course, pray!
Father, we know you are the Almighty God, the One who is in control. We pray for these victims in this time of need. We ask You overwhelm them with your peace, comfort, and grace. Lord, we pray we are united as one body, and that You would be glorified above all. We pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Where should I take these items?
Great question! You can drop off the items
at East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network (200 N. Beckham Ave. in Tyler)
You can also drop off your items
at the KVNE studio on Old Jacksonville Hwy. in Tyler.
An Encouraging Note from a Listener
As the nation watches our neighbors in the Houston and surrounding areas hit by Hurricane Harvey, I pray they see more than rising waters. I pray they see the ‘Living’ water of Jesus displayed through the hearts of Texans.
God not only loves us, He loves through us. The loving hearts of the first responders, good samaritans, volunteers, neighbors, and even strangers ALL coming together as ‘one.’
Hearts filled with LOVE have eyes that only see love!
When we come together as one to selflessly serve one another, we honor and glorify the One who deserves all our praise.
