We have disaster relief units, staff, and volunteers in Texas working from five locations, including two in the Houston area. Over the next weeks and months, there is a huge need to minister to hurting families in Jesus’ Name. We need an army of volunteers—as many as 1,000 a day. Please join us!
As Samaritan’s Purse responds to the destruction left by Hurricane Harvey, we are inviting Canadian volunteers to help devastated homeowners in Jesus’ name.
Hurricane Harvey has affected several areas in Texas, and we are inviting Canadian volunteers to join us in responding. Activities will vary throughout the week-long shifts that are offered, but work may include debris removal, roof tarping and mudouts.
Samaritan’s Purse will coordinate the details of travel, including flights from a major Canadian city to Houston, medical insurance while in the US, transportation in the Houston area, food, and accommodations. Each Canadian volunteer will fly down on a Sunday, spend the week serving local homeowners alongside Canadian and American volunteers, and return back home the following Sunday. Accommodations will be basic, and volunteers will be sleeping in shared quarters at a local church.
The suggested donation amount covers all team costs such as airfare from a major Canadian city, medical insurance, accommodations, and meals. Funds may be donated by the volunteer or raised through a Samaritan’s Purse online sponsorship page It does not include passport renewals, baggage fees, or meals while in transit.
Samaritan’s Purse Canada (SPC) invites team members to join in its charitable activities. SPC may only be able to undertake this mission trip if sufficient funds are raised. The cost of the trip to SPC is $1,000 and trip participants are asked to donate this full amount in order to cover the costs. Tax receipts will be issued for all gifts.
If you would like to join us, please complete the full volunteer application for the week(s) that you would serve. Full details about fundraising and other instructions will be sent to volunteers upon acceptance to a shift. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us.
The following week-long volunteer shifts are available for application.
