TBM Volunteers in Abilene and San Angelo Serve Own Communities

TBM has disaster relief volunteers all around the state. At times, they get to serve people in their own community.

The tornadoes and severe storms that hit Abilene and San Angelo this weekend caused damage to hundreds of homes in each area. TBM volunteers already began initial clean-up and assessment yesterday which continues today. The local TBM volunteers will help residents by installing temporary roofing tarps and clearing trees from homes and yards with chainsaws and heavy equipment. The majority of volunteer disaster relief efforts start on Monday morning.

In addition to this relief work, San Angelo‚Äôs Fire Chief, Brian Dunn, who also serves as the City Emergency Manager, has asked TBM to feed 100 families three meals a day as the relief efforts begin. The families are displaced due to damage to their home or the lack of electricity. The TBM Feeding Unit serving these families is based in San Angelo enabling them to impact their own community. 

We are continuing our disaster relief in Longview and expect another week or two there as we clear trees from homes.

Ways you can be involved:
1. Volunteer - if you are TBM chainsaw-trained, please contact your area coordinator;
2. Donate - give financially to help feed families in San Angelo; and
3. Pray - your continued prayers for safety and opportunities to provide Hope.
