September 18, 2008: The Gulf Coast’s Vietnamese Americans need your help! Ike and Gustav hit the Gulf Coast even harder than Katrina, and BPSOS is working to connect evacuees to urgently-need services. A constant stream of people is arriving at the office of BPSOS-Houston asking for help.
You can make a difference. You can donate to support our work to extend relief services by clicking here. You can help by volunteering, especially if you are bilingual. Join us at the office to help record people’s needs and contact information, and help us refer them to the right services!
Houston is the focus now, but we are collecting information about areas that are safe to deploy volunteers. We will need help on the ground in other locations soon!
To volunteer immediately in Houston, or to offer help in the future at locations to be determined, call (281) 530-6888, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
