ADRN - Central Texas Tornado Relief - Donate Here

Latest Information from ADRN to assist Central Texas Tornado victims:

Yesterday's tornado outbreak devastated communities and damaged homes and cars, leaving families to pick up the pieces. Here are 3 ways you can help us support their emergency needs and long-term recovery efforts:

  • Donate to the Central Texas Tornadoes Relief Fund HERE OR through Bethany using the link above.
  • Assemble a Survivor Care Kit and drop it off at HOPE Family Thrift Store (1122 E. 51st St)  OR  drop off at one of the donation bins at Bethany and Jimmy Wilson will deliver to ADRN headquarters. You can find a list of Care Kit items and assembly instructions, HERE
  • Share the Disaster Survivor Hotline number with families and individuals who need assistance (512-806-0800).

Let's show our neighbors we're here for them in disaster and every day after!

Supplies for Medical Service Providers Needed!

ADRN is partnering with the City of Austin Emergency Management Office to address a critical shortage of personal protective equipment and sanitation supplies for our local health care providers. ADRN has requested assistance in gathering these needed items from the local churches that are part of the ADRN Network, including Bethany UMC.

Items needed are
  • Face Masks (Surgical, N95)
  • Gloves (Latex, Non-Latex, Food Handling Plastic Gloves)
  • Goggles
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Disinfectant Wipes

If you are able to help out, you can drop off your donations at the ADRN bins at Bethany during the day and our Facilities staff will gather and provide to Jimmy Wilson who will deliver to ADRN Headquarters.

What an opportunity we have to serve our city and those God loves! May Jesus be glorified through His Church!
