Heartland Partners with World Vision to Bring Relief to Hurricane Harvey Victims

Heartland is partnering with World Vision International to collect and ship the following flood relief items to Houston and the surrounding areas. Below is a list of items that you can drop off at Heartland:

Personal Care Items

  • Diapers
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine Hygiene

School Supplies

  • Backpacks
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Notebook Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue sticks

Bring only new items. We are not collecting any items other than those on the list (no clothes). You can bring the supplies to church at the following times:

  • Mon – Saturday: 7am to 9 pm
  • Sunday: 7am – 4pm
  • Labor Day the church will be closed

Heartlanders and the people of Rockford are partnering with World Vision International to bring help and hope to people in the Houston area and beyond who have suffered so much from Hurricane Harvey and the unprecedented flooding that has followed. Please keep them, as well as first responders, rescue teams, and relief workers in your prayers.

As you are able, drop off any of the items listed above at the Heartland Mall at 1280 South Alpine Road in Rockford to help with ongoing relief efforts. We will transport the supplies to Chicago. From there, World Vision will ensure that the supplies reach those in need.

The damage to property and the disruption to life is catastrophic. The pain it causes to those who have already lost so much is real and heart breaking. Together, we can extend a hand of compassion in the name of our God, letting them know that each person matters to Him and to us.
