We are working with the Islamic Society of Greater Houston to provide essential assistance to those affected by the flooding in Houston and surrounding areas.



The Cause

Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas coast last Saturday. Flooding from the storm is overburdening resources in the country's fourth-largest city.The National Weather Service calls the flooding "unprecedented," leaving over 80,000 homes destroyed by this flooding. 


Penny Appeal is working with local relief agencies and local partners such as the ISGH who are responding to the storm. We are sending trucks full of hygiene packs, water and food as well as tools to help with de-mucking.

    Tools & Equipment For Mucking Out & Gutting Houses

    After gaining safe re-entry to their homes, the first step will be to evacuate the water and remove the soggy debris. Exposure to toxic chemicals and sewage in standing floodwaters is bad enough, but the lasting danger to a house and its occupants are the pernicious effects of mold for years to come. Mold can set in quickly and is difficult to remove once established. This pack will include the tools and equipment needed to clean up a home.
