Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen raised $18,000 for disaster relief to be divided equally among victims in Houston and Puerto Rico while an anonymous donor matched that total. Half the funds will be distributed to Family Protective Services in Houston and 12 surrounding counties to buy goods ranging from diapers to strollers to shoes and socks for needy children, with the remainder going to Concilio in Puerto Rico.
