Houston, TX, February 25th , 2018- Eight Days of Hope
(EDOH) and the 4B Disaster Response Network (4B)
have partnered to conduct a major rebuilding effort
in Galveston County and Southeast Harris County in
March 2018 to help families in the area rebuild from the
aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. EDOH and 4B will bring
together thousands of volunteers from across the nation
and other countries to help rebuild hundreds of homes,
but local volunteers are needed, too.
This project, deemed Eight Days of Hope XIV – XV,
will take place March 10th – March 24th 2018. The
geographical area targeted will be the 4B area of focus,
which is defined as the Beltway to Galveston Beach
and Galveston Bay to Brazoria County. EDOH and 4B
expect to help as many as 700 homeowners repair flood
damage in their homes. This goal will be very difficult
to achieve, however, without the involvement of local
volunteers. EDOH and 4B are asking everyone in the
Houston/Galveston area to consider joining us by volunteering
to help. Anyone wanting to volunteer can simply
go to www.eightdaysofhope.com and click on “Volunteer
XIV – XV”.
Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are needed.
While most volunteers will be directly involved in rebuilding
homes, many others are needed for tasks such as
data entry, cooking, driving delivery vans, and providing
laundry services. EDOH does request that volunteers
commit to at least 3 days of service, but the days do
not have to be consecutive and can fall anywhere during
the period of March 10th – March 24th. Much more
information can be found on the EDOH FAQ page. Eight
Days of Hope is a nonprofit, faith-based organization
committed to rebuilding the damaged homes of those
affected by natural disasters.
Since 2005, 27,509 Eight Days of Hope volunteers
have helped to rebuild, remodel or refurbish 1,916
homes in Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Iowa,
Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina on thirteen
different relief trips. To date, more than thirty-four million
dollars of work has been completed by Eight Days of
Hope.
The 4B Disaster Response Network is a local, nonprofit,
faith-based corporation dedicated to helping
families impacted by Harvey in rebuilding their homes
over the next 1 – 2 years. 4B is comprised of a network
of local churches and was created to reflect the
gospel of Jesus Christ by serving people affected by
disaster in the 4B area. The budget for this outreach
will be over two million dollars. Rebuild projects will be
prioritized based on need so that the uninsured/underinsured
are helped first and we serve all people regardless
of race, gender, religion or ethnicity. Please visit
