Just over a week ago, Hurricane Harvey devastated the Texas Gulf Coast. We were very fortunate, but so many still need your help. If you are looking for somewhere other than national organizations to donate to, there are plenty of local groups needing monetary assistance to help those displaced by floodwaters.
Austin Pets Alive – They have rescued over 1,700 animals displaced by the hurricane in the Houston area, and transported them to temporary shelters while they try to reunite them with their owners.
Church of the King – 100% of donations to the Harvey Relief Fund go straight to relief efforts and people in need.
Harris County Public Library – I know a few of their library branches suffered damage. I do not have information regarding monetary donations at the time of posting, but I will update if that option becomes available.
Houston Food Bank – Donations will be used for disaster relief until this year’s needs are met, and the remaining funds will support ongoing hunger-relief efforts.
Second Baptist Church – 100% of donations to the Flood Relief fund go to those in need.
In addition to families that were displaced, several schools suffered significant damage, and teachers are having to resupply their classrooms in temporary locations. If you would prefer to donate to them, here’s the list I have so far. I will update as I have more information.
- Seguin Elementary
- 1st grade Bilingual
- 3rd grade Bilingual
- 5th grade – Class One
- 5th grade – Class Two
In addition to the Texas Gulf Coast, the Carribean has been devistated by Hurricane Maria. Many animals have been abandoned, and your help is needed to save these innocent victims.
Thank you for your support!
