Hurricane Harvey relief – Ways to send aid to Texas

August 30, 2017

 

Like many of you, we feel completely helpless in this devastating wake of Hurricane Harvey. If only we could cross the miles to offer our own two hands! It is surreal to see so many people losing everything they have.

I am sure you all have seen many different organizations offering to help, but in case you need some additional ideas, here is what I have found from many of you readers near the area:

Team Rubicon – This directly funds volunteers who are trying to reach victims by boat or helicopter.

Salvation Army – Food and water to first time responders.

Airbnb – Offering emergency accomodations.

Greater Houston Hurrican Relief Fund (Set up by the mayor.)

Preemptive Love Coalition

Dream Center – Fund volunteers

Adore Ministries – Relocation, temp housing, and clean up crew

St. Vincent DePaul of Houston-Galveston

Sugar & Cloth Sponsor a Family – Adopt a family who has lost everything.

Texas Diaper Bank 

Foster Village Austin – Helping foster children misplaced by the hurricane.

Hope Supply Co – Blankets and Hygiene boxes for the homeless.

 

Monetary donations are the most effective way to help right now! If I have missed any, please comment below.

Our prayers are with you Texas!

  • You can also purchase a watercolor print of Texas from my shop http://www.fawnly.com – 100% will go to Catholic Charities hurricane Harvey relief fund. Thank you for listing these!

    Thanks for putting this list together and offering options. The Red Cross is getting a ton of publicity and, while they do good work, smaller groups need resources desperately too! Donating and praying right now. 💕

  • Thank you so much for these suggestions! Whenever there is a natural disaster, I struggle to figure out how I can best support the people. I can’t believe I’ve never thought of it before, but St. Vincent DePaul will be my go-to organization now. I’ve seen the amazing work they do and trust them to care for the people who need it most!
