2. Give to sbdr.org

Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, and affiliate teams from Alabama, are on the ground in Texas providing relief. Giving monetary donations to sbrd.org/texas helps to ensure that volunteers have the tools they need at the time they need it. It provides for not only relief services but also chaplaincy and other needs to those suffering from storm damage.
