Help After Harvey
We stand ready to serve anyone in need of food and clothing in the aftermath of Harvey. Since 1983, Emergency Aid Coalition (EAC) has been providing food and clothing direct distribution services to the Houston community. In 2017, the EAC provided services to over 70,000 individuals.
Our facility on Fannin Street weathered the storm with no flood damage and is open distributing food, food relief boxes, clothes and hygiene items.
The EAC will have a significant need for additional financial resources to help the tens of thousands of people who will be needing immediate assistance. Please consider joining us and helping them by making a contribution to the EAC.
Due to the incredible generosity of people all over the country, in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the EAC can only accept the following clothing donations (temporarily):
Men’s pants (waist sizes 30-36)
School age pants (size 5-16)
Women’s X-Large and larger clothing
Blankets & sheets
Towels & washcloths
We so appreciate all of our EAC friends!
Saving lives hand in hand.
Founded in 1983, in Houston, Texas, the Emergency Aid Coalition is an interfaith organization that collaborates to provide temporary assistance in the form of food, clothing and other basic needs, with an emphasis on serving the working poor.
Each year we help more than 50,000 individuals living on the edge of poverty. Support from member congregations, dedicated volunteers, fundraisers and other benefactors allows the Emergency Aid Coalition to continue serving those in need in Houston’s inner city and Midtown neighborhoods.
The EAC serves individuals and families in Harris County who need food and/or clothing. We do not offer financial assistance of any kind. To receive services from us, you will be asked to complete a short intake interview and provide required documents.
