Trinity Lutheran Church, Merrill, is working with the Austin Disaster Relief Network to meet the needs of those evacuating into the City of Austin, Texas from areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.
They are anticipating the need for many items in the days ahead to help with the immediate needs of survivors impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Trinity Church is asking members of the community to help fill the semi trailer parked in the Trinity Church parking lot at 107 N. State St. The church began taking items Sept. 6, and will end collection on Sunday, Sept. 17. Collection times will be 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. The collected items will be dropped off at one of four location sites in Central Texas for distribution. If you would like to donate items, see below for items needed.
