Abilene organizations partner for hail relief effort


ABILENE, Texas - Abilene Damascus Road, the Boots on the Ground Ministry, and others have partnered to provide hail damage relief to those who have no insurance or did not receive enough money for repairs after June's hailstorm in Abilene.

The storm, cost an estimated $400,000,000 in damages throughout the city.

Others involved in the effort include Global Samaritan resources, a lawyer to answer all questions about insurance, and professional roofers.

"It feels great to be able to team up," said Jeff Smith, of the Boots on the Ground Ministry at Beltway Park, "and to see all these other guys coming into the picture and just everybody together."
