The Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Florida sent their first group of volunteers to Houston this week to combat the floods.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Clearwater, FL – 50 volunteers from the Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Florida left Clearwater this week to join the growing number of people in Houston to help in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
“Hurricane Harvey has affected over 30,000 people so they need all the help they can get,” said Ms. Glendy Goodsell, the Executive Director for the Volunteer Ministers of Florida. “The Scientology Volunteer Ministers cannot shut their eyes to such devastation.”
There are currently hundreds of Texas residents helping the National Guard, FEMA and other organizations rescue victims of the hurricane. Many people are still trapped in their homes even though over 10,000 people have been rescued so far.
In addition to giving their support in man-power, the Volunteer Ministers are gathering hygiene supplies, such as diapers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and more for those who are without homes.
Volunteer Ministers have trained and partnered with more than 800 different groups, organizations and agencies including the Red Cross, FEMA, the National Guard, and police and fire departments.
“Expect to see hundreds of our signature yellow shirts in Houston,” said Ms. Goodsell. “Our motto is ‘Something Can Be Done About It’ and that’s exactly what we intend to do.”
