COVID-19 Church Response

If you are a church interested in supporting our work, please contact us now!

We work with the local church to model what can happen when people work together for the common good. Therefore, it is a core value of ours to put faith into action and develop platforms and outlets that strengthen faith and put faith into practice. This is no different as we serve on the front lines of COVID-19. This week we held meetings with churches across Houston. Many stepped into action! If you are a church interested in supporting our work, please contact us now!

 

Dear Church Partners,

As you know, we are called to not grow weary in doing good, but will reap a harvest if we do
not give up (Gal. 6:9). We are not giving up on doing good. We want you to join us!

Actually, we are asking you to prayerfully consider a financial gift
(attackpockpoverty.org/donatenow) to support this work.

You all have served and supported us so well in the recent weeks. It has been an unprecedented time for Attack Poverty, but the Lord has been faithful, good and present. I as well as our locations received calls, emails and texts from many of you all stating you are with us! We were moved and encouraged by your support and we are thankful for your commitment to stand with us.

Needless to say, we are in the midst of another unprecedented time with COVID-19 and we are asking you to actively participate with us as we set up much-needed distribution centers (more details below). Let’s walk together as we take care of our community! Attack Poverty needs you, our communities need you. When no one else is standing, we will be the people of God standing together in the gap for the most vulnerable. We are putting our Faith into Action, join us!

Below are key action steps we are taking – read on….

We are setting up local distribution sites for these resources at our locations. Find out more here: attackpoverty.org/covid-19

There are a few key opportunities where you can get involved immediately:

  1. Give – Our local community-based operations have shifted to support our communities to ensure they have access to resources. We know this will be months’ worth of work, and we invite you to join us in this effort. Click here: attackpoverty.org/donatenow
  2. Volunteer – We have limited volunteer opportunities at our distribution sites, but we do have spots for you and your congregants. On our website there is a place to click to volunteer – just choose your location and sign up. Our volunteer coordinator in that location will be in touch! Volunteer here: attackpoverty.org/covid-19
  3. Collect Items – We have a list of items we are collecting to resource our friends. Kits of essential items such as non-perishable foods, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, medicine, and resources for children will be assembled. Learn more about what supplies you can donate here: attackpoverty.org/covid-19

Again, all of this information can be found on our website – attackpoverty.org/covid-19. We are grateful for you and your church as we walk together to serve our communities. Please let us know how we can also be a resource to you during this time.

Serving Together,
