A SPECIAL MESSAGE
from Cam and his family
Friends, family and supporters of the Maybin Mission,
As of August 31, more than 32,000 people have been displaced from their homes in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Saddened by the loss and devastation in the Houston community, my family and I began arranging a relief supply drive in Asheville, NC shortly after the storm struck. Little did we know, God had a more hands-on plan in mind for us.
As of this morning, I have been traded by the L.A. Angels to the Houston Astros.
I am so blessed for the time I got to spend on and off the field with the Angels, inspiring local children to chase hard after their greatest dreams, but I could not be more honored for the calling to serve the Houston community in its time of dire need. I look forward to brightening the faces of Astros fans with my love and dedication for the game, but even more so, I look forward to using my Maybin Mission platform to drive hope, compassion and strength to my new community in Houston, and to all areas affected by the storm.
A special thank you to my Angels friends and fans for all your support this last season. It's been one of the greatest years of my professional career.
Astros fans - I can't wait to meet you, and I'm ready to give it my all.
We will continue with our plans for a relief supply drive in my hometown of Asheville, North Carolina, and have already initiated some more local relief efforts in partnership with the Houston Food Bank.
Please keep an eye on this page for information about how you can join the Maybin Mission's Houston recovery efforts.

Maintaining hygiene in the wake of a natural disaster is enough of a challenge - but for many women and girls in the Houston area, lack of feminine hygiene products is adding stress and struggle. The Maybin Mission's Girls Helping Girls, Period campaign is a hygiene drive to collect tampons and pads for females displaced by the storm.
