Operation Blessing offers Imelda relief

Operation Blessing volunteers delivering water in Beaumont after Imelda.

Operation Blessing invites Southeast Texans who need help with post-Imelda cleanup to fill out a work request for free volunteer help at Cathedral Church at 2350 Eastex Freeway daily from 9:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m.

All residents must fill out a work order form and sign a release form in person, allowing volunteer teams access to your property. Volunteers will not be able to do work without a form signed by the homeowner. 

Priority is given based on need (elderly, sick, disabled, etc) and is based on volunteer availability. Volunteer services offered include debris removal and help finding and sorting salvageable belongings. For more information, call (800) 730-2537.
