Hurricane Harvey – How Can We Help?

 In Disaster Relief, Frontpage

Many individuals and churches would like to do something to help the survivors of the devastating hurricane in Texas. What can we do?

Pray for those whose lives have been turned upside-down by the storm, for the military and first responders working hard to get people to safety, and for the helping organizations providing assistance.


Texas authorities have requested that all volunteer organizations tell donors that they do not have warehouse space to receive donated goods or water, and ask that you donate financially or by sending gift cards through your favorite organization of choice.

Financial donations will enable our Disaster Relief teams to directly assist Harvey survivors.

  • Checks – made to the South Carolina Baptist Convention and marked for Harvey Disaster Relief.
  • Online – donate with credit card at

Gift Cards (Visa, MasterCard) allow survivors the dignity of choosing their own products/brands rather than taking what has been chosen by someone else. When survivors in previous disasters received gift cards, they LOVED them and were most appreciative. Cards can be sent to the SCBC Disaster Relief office, and we will get them to our Texas counterparts to distribute.
