Convoy is sending more relief supplies to communities affected by the severe flooding in Houston and south Texas. Loads of food, water, cleanup supplies, tarps, hygiene supplies, and more are en route. 

Floodwaters in the area began to recede yesterday. As residents return to their homes to assess damage, Convoy is there to provide the essential resources they need to begin cleanup, stay hydrated, and feed their families while they look toward recovery.

Convoy of Hope is en route to help those affected by the flooding in Houston, Texas. 

Days of heavy rain pummeled the Houston area, swelling rivers and causing flash flooding. Crews have rescued hundreds of people stranded on rooftops, in their cars, or on murky roads. As of this morning, Houston is still under a river flood warning.  

Convoy team members left the World Distribution Center early this morning with multiple loads of essential supplies, such as food, water, cleaning supplies, hygiene kits, and more. 

Whatever the storm, Convoy is always prepared to bring help and hope to those in need.
