Local church giving away food and water to Kingsville residents affected by storm

It was bad the storm was very strong and ugly,” said Maria Solis.

The Catholic Charities of Corpus Christi traveled to Kingsville to set up shop here at the Saint Gertrude’s Catholic Church. Inside, they’re helping families register to get the help they need.

“Assessments that we’re doing today help us identify families in need so that when we get those resources we know who they’re going to,” said Kristofer Morgan, with the Catholic Charities of CC.

Case managers are assessing the damage to homes as well as giving away food and water.

“Corn, peaches, peas, pork loins and milk,” said Morgan.

They’re also providing an extra helping hand for those who suffered power outages.

“We are currently working on getting gift cards to H-E-B and Walmart that can help provide to families so they can replenish the food they lost from being without power for quite a while,” said Morgan.

Volunteers with the organization are on standby in Corpus Christi ready to help homeowners who still need debris cleaned up off of their properties

For families needing more assistance, the City of Kingsville expects the American Red Cross to set up a central location to take assessments in the coming days.

“Thankful for them helping us,” said Solis.

If you’d like to donate items to people in Kingsville recovering from the storm you can drop off supplies at the Kingsville Police Department.
