How to Help Heal Texas:
Bring donations for flood victims to the New Life Center and Ken’s Kar Kare
Recovery and healing from the destruction of Hurricane Harvey has been an ongoing effort for residents since it slammed into the coast near Corpus Christi, Texas, August 25. Where Harvey hit hardest, including Houston, 80 percent of homeowners lack flood insurance, making them dependent on private charity and government assistance.
Drop off donations for the flood victims in Houston at Ken’s Kar Kare in Fowler, now through September 16, and at the New Life Center in Lansing, now through September 15. (NO cash donations are being accepted)
Hours for the donation drop:
Monday – Friday NOW through September 15, from 9 am – 12 pm, at the New Life Center, 1601 East Grand River, Lansing, MI 48906 and we will deliver your items to Ken’s Kar Kare by September 16.
Monday through Friday, 8 am – 5 pm, now through September 15, and Saturday, September 16, from 10 am – 3 pm to Ken’s Kar Kare, 10653 W. M-21, Fowler, MI 48835. There is a large truck trailer in the parking lot and it would be nice to fill it!
The most needed items are:
Socks (unopened packages)
Blankets, shoes, and clothing are extremely helpful, but gently used items only.
Small toys and clean stuffed animals
Thanks to the sponsors of the trailer, Simon Brothers Trucking, Ken’s Kar Kare, family-owned by Ken and Kathy Farley, and Jeepend. Special thanks to Chuck Biewer, of St. John’s, a longtime supporter of the New Life Center, for volunteering to coordinate delivery of the donations.
