As much as 17 inches of rain hit the region IN JUST FOUR HOURS, leaving many areas devastated from the flooding.
+ + Towns Under Water!
I just got off the phone with my contact in the area who spoke with the mayors of McAllen, Sullivan City, Mission, and Palm View -- towns that were UNDER WATER after the deluge of rain hit. All four mayors remembered Mercy Chefs for our Thanksgiving outreach a few years back and specifically asked if it was possible for our teams to come and help their communities in the midst of this crisis. THEY ASKED FOR US BY NAME!Read more

Your Gift Will Support Efforts To Help Hurricane Harvey Victims!
Nearly a year after Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of the Texas Gulf Coast, many families are still struggling to recover. Mercy Chefs is supporting the efforts of 350 students who are helping rebuild storm-ravaged areas in Houston THIS WEEK. The families in many of these houses have no insurance, and they've received little or no FEMA assistance.
A Mercy Chefs team will prepare and serve breakfast and lunch to hundreds of volunteers working to repair the homes of impoverished Hurricane Harvey victims. Many have been forced to live among the mold and debris left behind by the killer "Category 4" storm. For a tax-deductible donation of just $25, you can help sponsor 10 of those meals. A gift of $50 or $100 can feed 20 or 40 people in Houston this week!
Please stand with us to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those still working to recover from Hurricane Harvey. Simply complete the form below to make your most generous gift now!Donate
Each emergency meal prepared and served by Mercy Chefs is made possible by the generosity of friends like you. Give now.
The recent eruption of Volcán de Fuego (Spanish for "Volcano of Fire") in Guatemala has killed hundreds, maybe thousands. Mercy Chefs, Grassfire's disaster-relief partner, has responded by deploying a team to the Central American country that's working with local church pastors and doctors to care for displaced volcano victims, rescue workers, soldiers, medical teams and others.
Your support at this critical time is important to their success feeding body and soul. It typically costs Mercy Chefs about $2.50 to prepare and serve a hot, nutritious meal in a disaster area. But their team will incur significant travel and other expenses responding to Central America. Your tax-deductible gift is urgently needed to meet a $6,000 emergency need!
