Hurricane Harvey Relief

This tragedy has affected so many people and it’s heartwarming to see the amount of help they have received.

My family was fortunate. Although the water in our neighborhood got higher than I ever saw, none of us received any water in our homes. We are helping those who were not so fortunate now.

As I scroll through Facebook to see who needs help where, what supplies are needed, where we can take food, or volunteer, I am seeing so many different websites and locations that I wanted to try and compile them to make it easier for those of you who do want to help.

Monetary Donations: Before you donate any money, please make sure it is legitimate. Be very wary of all of the GoFundMe pages, too. Unfortunately, there are people out there trying to make a buck off of others’ pain and suffering and there is a special place in Hell for them. Here is a list of a few places to donate money.

Other Donations: These are pages/places for clothing, food, household items, etc.

To Volunteer: 

I know there are a ton of places I didn’t list, so please feel free to do so in the comments or let me know an I will add it.

Even though the rain has stopped, the water and flooding have not. The clean up process is going to be long and arduous so we need to help people stay positive by staying positive ourselves. If you plan on donating clothing, please be mindful of what you take. Don’t use this as a chance to clean out your closet and take a bunch of winter boots and coats – it’s still summer here in Texas.
