Deweyville Trip

Kirk is putting a team together to go to Deweyville, Texas to help a church that has been flooded.  Deweyville is on the border with Louisiana and just north of Orange. 

We will be leaving on Monday, September 18th around 7:00 am and returning Wednesday, September 20th.  If you have the desire to help and have the ability to get off work for a couple days, here are the details:

  • Leave Monday morning 7:00 am.  Meet at church
  • We could use a truck with a V8 to tow a box trailer if you have one
  • Need to pack work clothes, gloves, eye protection, tools that would be helpful for carpet and drywall removal (hammers, pry bars, utility knives, etc)
  • Bring respirator mask
  • Bring bug spray
  • We will be staying in a gym at the church that was not flooded.  The gym is supposed to have showers and AC.  Bring an air mattress, pillow, and your teddy bear or whatever you need to sleep

Call Kirk Wooldridge at 512-255-3454 for more information or to sign-up.
