Good Stuff in TEC: Texas

More on Hurricane Ike relief

The Episcopal Diocese of Texas has a ministry attached to the Medical Branch of the University of Texas and a social service unit that helps the needy, both in Galveston. But until the main bridge to this barrier island community is reopened the on-location impact will be limited.

“We can’t get in those areas,” said Carol Barnwell, the communications director for the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.

Don Cimato, a spokesperson for Domestic Disaster Response of the Episcopal Relief & Development said his organization will provide water, food and sundries to help sustain the day to day living where there is access and then help with long-term assistance when need arises.
