BOONE, N.C., Aug. 31, 2017 —Vice President Mike Pence joined Samaritan’s Purse at one of its work sites in Rockport, Texas, today, where the international Christian relief organization and its volunteers are helping Hurricane Harvey victims. The vice president met with volunteers and homeowners who lost many of their belongings because of damage caused by the storm and extensive flooding.

Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief Units are currently set up in the Rockport and Victoria areas, where teams of volunteers are helping storm victims by tarping roofs, mudding out homes, clearing debris and salvaging as many of their belongings as possible. Three additional units are standing by to move into Houston and Galveston as soon as floodwaters recede enough for Samaritan’s Purse to set up operations in those areas.
