Charities from across the country are delivering supplies and help to the people of South Texas as the storm Harvey keeps dropping more and more rain on the area.

CBN’s Operation Blessing is on the scene preparing to give a helping hand.

The OB team has mobilized outside the danger zone and is prepared to help those in need in both Texas and Louisiana.  

Operation Blessing will provide a mobile shower for hurricane victims as well as hot meals, cots and a generator.

The OB team will also be available to offer prayers for those impacted by the storm and praised those who have donated. 

"Without your support this wouldn't be possible. So those who give to CBN and OB, I want to personally say 'thank you. Thank you for your generosity, thank you for your prayer coverage, because we need it, not only here in the United States but around the world,'" said OB's Jody Getty. 

Other faith-based charities like Convoy of Hope have set up in Corpus Christie and Victoria, Texas. 

They will provide food and toiletries. 

CBN News National Security Correspondent Erik Rosales was there as they began unloading supplies at Church of Hope in Corpus Christie.

He described the scene as people doing exactly as Jesus instructed. 

“The scene was one spreading the word of Jesus, serving God and doing what he tells the people to do. Actually getting out and serving the people as Jesus did,” said Rosales.

The American Red Cross has roughly 60 shelters ready for those in need of housing after the storm.

As of Saturday night, many of the shelters were being put to use.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott praised the organizations stepping in to help.

In a press conference, Abbott told reporters he was "very, very appreciative of everyone in the state of Texas who is providing food and other supplies."

President Trump tweeted his thanks to the San Antonio Food Bank for helping out their fellow Texans.
