Hurricane Harvey swept through Houston earlier this week and although the rain has stopped many have lost their home, belongings and pets. Much help is still needed and I’m making it easy for you to contribute by clicking the links below.

Money is the best way to assist the many people that need the aid. Financial donations can be sent to the The American Red Cross and will be allocated to areas that it matters most.

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund was established by the Mayor and County Judge and will accept tax-deductible flood relief donations for victims affected.

Houston Food Bank is looking for both volunteers and donations of food, water and supplies.

Houston Humane Society is working with a national team to connect to other shelters to transport many of the animals north.

Texas Diaper Bank is accepting any brand and size of baby and adult diapers, pull ups, formula and wipes.

Be careful to avoid fake Harvey charities.

They make it so easy for us to give these days.  Please take a minute to simply text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10.

There are many displaced families that would appreciate your kindness.
