Today in the midst of organizing our volunteer and distribution for Southeast Texas, we helped the YMCA distribute a trailer load of ice on at our main site as well as two other trailer loads at the High School across the street. We also ran our van around to different apartments who still didn't have electricity. We had some help from members at St. John's Lutheran in Cypress and got the job done in no time. After haggling with the police for about 30 minutes about whether we would cause a traffic jam at the intersection, we were finally released to distribute the ice to those who needed it.
While some of us were doing that, members from Centro de Fe y Esperanza were getting a whole trailer load of food from a warehouse to their church for distribution tomorrow (by loading pickups and driving the food to the church.) I think that doing the ice was easier than what they had to do.
One mistake that we made is accidentally sent Iris' personal cell phone number out on a flyer announcing food distribution at Comunidad de Gracia tomorrow. I'm sorry Iris, it wasn't me :-). Maybe next week it will be safe to turn your phone back on.
