Where can I donate items for Texas flood victims?

The Houston County Courier has received many calls and Facebook messages from Houston County residents asking where they can donate items for the flood victims of Texas. As we receive notifications of drop off areas we will notify you by Facebook and our website at

Here are a few places we know of that where you can donate.

Pastor Darryl Bennett and Crockett Mayor Joni Clonts are gathering much needed items for the areas hit by heavy rains. Please, if you have any items to spare, take them by the Eastgate Family Church in Crockett. Pastor Bennett will be taking a load of items today and everyday that items are collected.

You can donate used clothing to Lucky Cleaners to be cleaned and then sent on to Texas' flood victims.

If you live near Grapeland you can take donation items for the flood victims of Texas to the Grapeland Fire Department.

Thank you Houston County for being so giving to fellow Texans in need!
