ROAD TO RECOVERY: Volunteers and church work together to recover in Crosby

CROSBY, Texas (KTRK) -- In the sea of water that enveloped much of the Crosby area during Harvey, Crosby Church was an island of refuge.

"We dealt with all of our first responders, for I don't even know how many days," said Pastor Keenan Smith.

These days the church gym is still overflowing with donations which have poured in from all over the country.

The emergency has passed, but the people of Crosby are still in need, and that's where volunteers, like Kelly Harell, help by driving donations of food and supplies out to flooded homes.

"We just sit and talk to them," she said,"Their life is in shambles and we're the first people who've stopped to say we care."

The church is already thinking ahead to the holidays by creating Thanksgiving boxes full of food, yet still encouraging individuals to take life after-Harvey one day at a time.

"Tomorrow is going to be better than today, each moment is going to be better than the last," said Smith,"as long as we're progressing together."
