Texas Floods Spur Emergency Response

Severe weather and torrential rains have caused major flooding across Texas – killing more than a dozen people, stranding thousands of drivers and forcing many to flee their flooded homes in cities across the state.

Heart to Heart International is responding to help.  A shipment of hundreds of emergency hygiene kits has been readied by our operations staff and will soon depart our Operations Hub bound for Austin, Texas.

The hygiene kits are assembled by our volunteers and are part of a wider sponsorship by corporate partner Johnson & Johnson to help us deliver aid, comfort and hygiene.  This shipment of hygiene kits will be sent to our friends at Catholic Charities of Central Texas in Austin for distribution to those affected by the flooding in the state’s capital city.
