Texas Baptist Men: The Dallas based organization that provides help to those in need for decades

Dallas, Texas – This past weekend, a team of disaster relief volunteers from Texas Baptist Men started their journey from Dallas to Little Rock to provide aid and comfort after a deadly tornado rampaged through the city. The group’s Director of Disaster Relief, David Wells, expressed that they have been vigilantly monitoring the weather and had volunteers on standby with the equipment ready to go if the need arose. The initial deployment crew included a command center and a large generator.

During the weekend, Texas Baptist Men crews were centered on assessing the damage caused by the tornadoes before additional volunteers were set to arrive in the upcoming days with power tools and a mobile kitchen. In Little Rock itself, the damages are extensive, with over 2,000 homes and businesses destroyed or damaged according to the mayor.

Texas Baptist Men have been quick to respond, and the team is ready and committed to stepping in to assist those who have lost confidence in the face of this tragedy. They aim to serve as a beacon of hope and aid to those in dire need.
