How You Can Help with Hurricane Disaster Relief

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma were major storms that made landfall within days of eachother. They both brought devastation and catastophy to the areas they impacted, and the road to recovery will be long. You have the chance to make a difference. If you’re interested in helping those impacted by Harvey and Irma, consider supporting one of the organizations below.

American Red Cross

The Red Cross has made it easier than ever to help provide immediate relief to those impacted by Harvey and Irma. You can give online for Harvey and for Irma, or call 1-800-RED CROSS. Any size donation helps.

Greater Houston Community Foundation

Another way to help is to donate to the Greater Houston Community Foundation. Mayor Sylvester Turner established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund through the foundation so any individual or business can donate to victims.

United Way of Great Houston

The United Way Relief Fund has been set up in order to meet storm-related needs and help the affected community recover as quickly as possible. Through the fund you can donate to a specific region or wherever they deem it would do the most good.

Texas Diaper Bank

The Texas Diaper Bank, located in San Antonio, is in serious need of donations. Disaster agencies often don’t supply diapers for babies, children, and senior citizens. You can donate on their site or through Jet.com to send diapers directly to the bank.

Feeding Texas and Feeding Florida

The Feeding Texas and Feeding Florida food banks are providing thousands of families with food, shelter meals, and cleaning supplies. Any amount will help the organization provide food to more people suffering from the impacts of Harvey or Irma.

Portlight Strategies

Portlight Disaster Strategies aims to provide disability supplies to people who need them to maintain their health. Donations received will help in their efforts to get people with disailities to safety and access to essential equipment they may require.

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army says they are ready to give survivors and rescue workers every type of support they need. They will remain in the impacted communities beyond the time the rain stops in order to help in any way they can.

Florida Disaster Relief

Governor Rick Scott activated the Florida Disaster Relief to assist Florida’s communities as they respond to and recover during times of emergency or disaster.

  3. Thank you Andy for contributions and input, I too have made a $$ donation to Hurricane Harvey relief fund, there are many different charitable organizations folks can give to, whether it be goods or money, I wanted to be sure All the money was kept in Houston, TX, that is why I chose them.

  4. @liana-brackett, I made a $10 donation to American Red Cross while I was shopping last Friday, September 1. I pledge to donate another $10 online later this week. This way, my attitude remains confident knowing that I accomplished something to help the victims of this mammoth flooding from Hurricane #Harvey. Every bit of assistance helps. #houstonstrong 😀

  5. I believe I read that Habitat for Humanity will need donations (for the victims of HH). I don’t have enough for each but I will do what I can!

  6. The destruction and devastation is so hard to comprehend, one man said you just can’t until you are there for yourself… I can’t donate millions like some AWESOME folks have done But if everyone who reads these stories donates what ever they can… Yes it will make a difference! Keeping you all in our prayers!

    1. @merlhud, if anybody has unused items that he/she would like to donate, then that is a colossal benefit. Every critical donation is essential to the recovery endeavors from Hurricane Harvey. #houstonstrong 😀

  7. The Episcopal Relief & Development is providing assistance; Charity Navigator rates them 4-Star (the highest rating).
