Houston judge praises Church

Hurricane season keeps residents and Church members in the Gulf Coast on their toes from June to November each year. While many worked to provide aid for those in need during past hurricanes, much of the relief came from the Church.

After Hurricanes Katrina and Ike, the Church delivered 4.9 million pounds of food and water to those in need. Following Hurricane Ike, Latter-day Saint volunteers assisted in completing "work orders" in more than 2,000 homes in Galveston. Volunteers also provided assistance at the homes of more than 100 first responders in Galveston County, while these local firefighters, police officers and paramedics were out helping those in the community.
