Interfaith launches recovery response to Winter Storm Disaster

By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX (February 19, 2021) –  Interfaith of The Woodlands, The Woodlands Hometown nonprofit, launched its disaster response to assist neighbors affected by the record-breaking winter storm that polarized Montgomery County this past week.  

Interfaith opened its doors yesterday to assist neighbors with food, grocery gift cards and gas cards. Families will continue to be served Monday – Friday, 9am to 4pm by curbside and by drive through Food Distribution Wednesdays from 9am – 1pm at 4242 Interfaith Way.  

Families and individuals suffering loss through the storm may apply for crisis assistance, including rent/mortgage and utility assistance, gas cards, clothing vouchers and prescription assistance by emailing fs@woodlandsinterfaith.org or by calling 281-367-1230 during office hours, Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm.   

Missy Herndon, President & CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands, shared, “As we approach the end of the month, we anticipate a high volume of residents that will seek assistance not only for basic needs, but for rent, mortgage and utilities as they face the mounting insurance deductibles and replacing items lost to water or fire damage. For the past 47 years, our goal has been to help neighbors in crisis, and we will continue our efforts to meet the needs of those experiencing difficulties during this challenging time.”

Herndon shared, “I am always amazed by our community. From hurricanes, floods, fires, the COVID-19 pandemic and now a historic Arctic storm; we come together to help fellow neighbors and help Interfaith continue our very worthy mission of building a more loving and caring community through service.”
