Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has teamed up with Clay Walker, and Joel and Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church, to raise funds and awareness for the Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund – providing donations and financial assistance directly to the residents of our city who are suffering devastating loss from the recent floods. Houstonians are invited to a benefit concert, Friday, May 20th at 8 p.m. at Lakewood Church.

“So many people in our area suffered extreme loss due to these recent floods. Many lost more than possessions – jobs, family members, homes and in some cases their livelihood,” said Mayor Turner. “It is our privilege to come together and help our fellow Houstonians recover. I thank all of the wonderful people who have made this opportunity to help others in a big way possible.”

This benefit concert, headlined by Walker, will include a talented line-up of locally and nationally known musicians, celebrities, community leaders and those who care about Houston, will engage and inspire the community to give in a number of ways. Individual donations will grant anyone entrance to the live concert, viewers and others not in attendance will be given the opportunity to give by texting HOUSTON to 91999, sending a check to the Greater Houston Community Foundation/Greater Houston Storm Relief Form; via wire or money transfer and credit card. All details can be found at houstonrecovers.org. Corporations and donors also will be honored for their support in this effort to bring relief to our community.

“Houston has been home to me for most of my life. It is an honor to help those in need by joining together to heal hearts and repair the structures that shelter so many families who make up the rich fabric of our community,” said Clay Walker. “This is an opportunity to do good and feel good inside by uplifting our neighbors and showing them we care and are willing to share in their struggle as we all rebuild.”

“We are proud of our Lakewood Church staff and volunteers for their efforts helping our fellow Houstonians recover from the recent flooding. We are honored to continue these efforts as a part of Houston Recovers, and look forward to partnering with the Mayor’s office, as well as business, civic, and faith leaders, city relief organizations, and celebrities to raise funds for those who need it most,” said Joel and Victoria Osteen, Pastors of Lakewood Church.

Mayor Sylvester Turner has established The Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund, to accept flood relief donations that will stay in our community. The fund will focus on aiding storm victims “We’ve been hearing from residents who are confused about where they should donate to get assistance directly to the residents of our city who are suffering, said Mayor Turner. “The creation of this fund will ensure the dollars donated stay in our community. The fund will focus on aiding storm victims and relief organizations in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties,” added Turner. He said the fund will be administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF), a 501(c)3 non-profit public charity.

The concert will be broadcast and streamed LIVE on KTRK-ABC13 and SiriusXM Joel Osteen Radio, channel 128, 8-10pm CT, with multiple replays all weekend.
