Within hours of Harvey’s landfall, members of Chapelwood United Methodist Church took action. Pictured (from left) are volunteers Brendan Glenn, Ronnie Glenn, Lisa Glenn, Billy Bates, Mary Lou Strange, Chuck Strange, Diana Montgomery, Britt Hance, Ron Robertson (not pictured: wife Sibyl), Karen Loyd, Andy Loyd, Scott Reynolds, Pam Reynolds and Brooke Reynolds. Groups mobilized to put boots on the ground, paddles in the water, and residents on dry land. Some Chapelwood members created HoustonHarveyRescue.com, a linchpin in matching stranded Houstonians with volunteer rescue boats. Recovery assistance from the church includes home-cleanup crews, insurance advocacy, transportation, meals, laundry support and prayer. See chapelwood.org/harvey to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
