Tulsa, OK – Fourteen Oral Roberts University students leave Saturday morning at 7am to spend their fall break helping Hurricane Harvey victims in Corpus Cristi, Texas. The students will be working with Convoy of Hope, a non-profit disaster relief agency, serving meals, working in damaged homes, sorting through debris and cleaning up where needed.
The team will return the following Saturday, October 21. They will be taking lots of pictures and video while there, so let us know if you are interested in talking with them before they leave or after they return.
The Oral Roberts University community, along with the globally known church network and recording artists Planetshakers, have been generous in helping hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, raising over $20,000 in an offering given specifically for hurricane relief efforts.
