Ms. Loving gave a brief description of TEAM’s mission and the type of material and spiritual help that TEAM provides to the needy in the Tomball area. Their help goes to people living on the edge, to middle class people who experience a catastrophic occurrence, and vet out those who do not qualify for assistance. In 2015 TEAM helped 13,096 individuals in about 3,000 families in this area. TEAM’s annual budget is approximately $400K with funds coming from donations (like from TBLC and many other organizations) and from their resale store sales. Resale store hours are: Tues. – Sat. from 10a.m. – 6PM; Ministry times are: Tues. and Thurs. from 10a.m. – 2PM.
