With the city of Houston and the surrounding areas being hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, there are so many great charities to donate to! This city is where I was born and it completely holds my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this storm. These are just a few charities that I found. Please feel free to comment any others!
Here are a few:
“Hurricane Harvey has taken a catastrophic toll on our great city, while leaving many stranded and in need of assistance. We must come together and collectively help rebuild the aspects of our community members lives that were damaged or lost. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever. We are Texans.”
“After receiving an overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and companies who want to help, Mayor Sylvester Turner and County Judge Ed Emmett have established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax-deductible flood relief donations for victims affected by the recent floods.”
“We have launched the United Way Relief Fund to help meet storm-related needs and recovery in our community. 100% of your gift to the United Way Relief Fund goes to help our neighbors and our community recover from Hurricane Harvey. Thank you for your generosity.”
“Your support helps provide meals for hungry neighbors in emergencies and throughout the year. Together, we can help people in their greatest time of need. Once all this year’s disaster relief and recovery needs have been met, any remaining donations will be used to fund ongoing hunger-relief efforts.”
They also have free donation pick up.
“We provide a free donation pick-up service. We Pick-up donations inside or out, upstairs or down, you name we do it. We accept furniture donation, appliance donation,mattress donation,clothing donation,car donation, truck donation, boat donation and much more. Thank you for donating in the greater Houston area,” they say on their website.
“Hurricane Harvey is an unprecedented natural disaster in the state of Texas and will require an unprecedented effort in recovery. Your contribution will help people, organizations, and businesses recover and rebuild in all the impacted communities in Texas.”
