How You Can Help Fellow Texans Affected by Hurricane Harvey

by Scott and Tammy Watson

 

Hurricane Harvey made a first landfall Last Friday as a Category 4 storm, slamming Texas with brutal winds and severe flooding, leaving Houston underwater and millions of residents in need of aid. The relentless storm has dropped record-breaking rainfall and made a second landfall Wednesday in Louisiana. Here are some ways you can help.

Red Cross

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott recommended that those who want to help victims should donate to the American Red Cross, which he called a “tremendous asset.” A number of other organizations at the national, state and local levels will provide vital assistance to residents in the coming days, weeks and months.

Local and national relief organizations

The Salvation ArmySave the ChildrenSouthern Baptist Disaster ReliefHeart to Heart and Samaritan’s Purse are all on the ground in devastated areas and seeking donations to continue their response efforts. Texas Diaper Bank is sending out disaster relief kits to those affected. Team Rubicon is an emergency response team made up of military veterans and first responders. Oath (which is the parent company of Yahoo News) offers matching funds for donations to the Red Cross and some other organizations.

Food banks

Feeding Texas is a statewide network of food banks, and Houston Press has compiled a list of food banks serving the area hardest hit by Harvey. That list includes Houston Food BankGalveston County Food BankFood Bank of Corpus Christi and San Antonio Food Bank, among others.

Pets

To help nonhuman Texas residents, animal welfare organizations will be focused on rescuing, sheltering and rehoming pets. The Humane Society and the SPCA of Texas and their affiliated shelters will need money, supplies, food and foster volunteers.

Blood

Blood donations can be made through the American Red Cross, and Carter BloodCareWe Are Blood and the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center are all Texas-based organizations sure to be seeking increased donations.

Other relief efforts

Airbnb has set up an Urgent Accommodations page, allowing evacuees to find a place to stay for free with the help of those able to offer their space at no charge.

A list of individual crowdfunding campaigns related to the hurricane can be found at GoFundMe’s Hurricane Harvey Relief pageGlobalGiving, another crowdfunding site, is aiming to raise $2 million for a relief fund.

Most of the above organizations have volunteer opportunities available as well.

All of us here at Group Watson feel that even the smallest gift can make a difference, so please contact any of these agencies to see how you can help.
