Hurricane Harvey Relief

When called to action, the North Greenville Family responds with open hearts, and many have asked how the university can help with the disaster that has occurred in Texas as a result of Hurricane Harvey.

“At the present time, there is a lot of assessment going on, and volunteers are being discouraged from descending on these areas,” said Director for the Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership Dr. Allen McWhite, Sr. “There is a great need for funds.”

There are three ways that the NGU Family can give money toward the overwhelming needs and can be assured that the funds will go directly to help the struggling people in these devastated areas:

(1)  The Union Baptist Association in Houston will use funds to directly assist victims in the Houston area.  Click the link to donate:  www.ubahouston.org/give

(2)  The North American Mission Board of the SBC will use the funds to directly assist victims in the region. Click the link to donate: www.namb.net/send-relief/disaster-relief/hurricane-harvey

(3)  The Greenville Baptist Association will use funds to assist the victims in the communities where their Disaster Relief unit will be deployed.  Please send checks to: 220 Howe Street, Greenville 29601 (Attn: Disaster Relief)

“As more information is forthcoming and other means of disaster relief become known, I will keep the NGU Community informed,” said McWhite. “Right now, however, the greatest need is for funding to purchase food, water, and clothing—and other basic items—and to provide temporary housing/shelter for those who have been displaced.”

McWhite thanks the North Greenville Family for being Difference Makers in this time of great need.
