FEMA Deadline Extended for Disaster Relief

Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey now have until November 30 to register for federal assistance.

The deadline was November 24, however, an additional six days now gives survivors more time through the Thanksgiving holiday.

Federal assistance includes help for temporary housing, rental assistance and repair or replacement of damaged homes for eligible individuals and families who have suffered losses as a result of the storm. Additionally, grants may be available to help with other expenses such as medical and dental care, child care, funeral and burial costs, replacing essential household items, moving and storage, vehicle repairs and some clean-up items.

Renters and homeowners must be in a designated county to qualify for assistance.

Those counties include: Aransas, Austin, Bastrop, Bee, Brazoria, Caldwell, Calhoun, Chambers, Colorado, DeWitt, Fayette, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Gonzales, Grimes, Hardin, Harris, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Karnes, Kleberg, Lavaca, Lee, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Newton, Nueces, Orange, Polk, Refugio, Sabine, San Jacinto, San Patricio, Tyler, Victoria, Waller, Walker and Wharton.

Coastal Bend Troop Support

Sending care packages to our American Heroes!

It is with great pleasure that we write to invite you to join us as we work to the launch of the 1st Annual North Padre Island Coastal Bend Troop Support Crawfish Boil. A tentative date of the event is April 29th, 2017.

Coastal Bend Troop Support (CBTS) is a local 501c3 public charity that supports our military in war zones by providing care packages.  Each month volunteers pack and mail boxes to 120-150 individuals.  Each year, the Rockport group hosts a crawfish boil to raise awareness and funds to help our Veterans overseas.  We would like to share the experience with our Island residence as well as reach out to those Veterans that are closer to North Padre Island area.

We are in the very beginning stages of planning and would be honored if you would join us to support this organization.  Our next meeting will be Thursday November 10th at 9:00 am at Island Joe’s Coffee, 13919 SPID. Please let us know if you or someone from your organization would be interested in this opportunity to honor those who sacrifice so much for our Country.
