The Davis Hawn lumberyard has been covered with Sheds of Hope. Until now. The space has been cleared out, and the sheds have filled the back of a truck. They are now in Houston at our staging area, waiting for teams to set them up. Now we have the room to build more Sheds of Hope in the coming weeks in Dallas. As sheds are deployed to families, our staging area will have the space for us to send more Sheds of Hope.
The first of these Sheds of Hope will be set-up this weekend by an advance team from Park Cities Presbyterian Church called EXTEND. Their purpose is to be trained in order to lead other teams over the next few months. EXTEND teams will be traveling down to Houston on a regular basis to set up sheds and do other work as needed.
As families in south Texas clear out their damaged homes, Sheds of Hope will provide a safe place to store things that survived Hurricane Harvey. Once rebuilding is completed, and life returns to some kind of normalcy, the families, will clear out the sheds, returning things to their place in the home. The shed still remains, donated to the family, and will give them the space they need to store their lawnmowers and bicycles. After all, who doesn’t need more space?
