We are overwhelmed with sadness for those affected by the devastating flood conditions going on in Texas. So many need our help right now! Please consider making a donation to any organization helping with this massive undertaking. Any amount will make a difference. Donations of goods and services are needed as well and don’t forget our furry friends! Here is a list of organizations with different specialties. Thank you!!
American Red Cross volunteers and employees are working around the clock to provide shelter and supplies to Gulf Coast residents affected by Harvey.
Austin Pets Alive! says it has transported more than 235 animals to its shelter. The organization seeks donations, as well as people who can adopt animals. It says it has received so many donated supplies that it’s running out of storage space, so financial donations are what it needs most.
Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County coordinates the city’s response to homelessness, serving as “a backbone organization” to groups that offer direct service. It has been providing updated information on shelters with available beds.
Feeding Texas is a statewide nonprofit that works alongside state and federal relief efforts. The organization says it steps in during major disasters to “coordinate with the state and other providers so that relief reaches families quickly and the ‘second disaster’ of an unorganized response is avoided.”
Portlight Strategies facilitates projects involving people with disabilities, including post-disaster relief work. The organization says its hotline for Inclusive Disaster Strategies has received urgent requests from people in need.
The Salvation Army says it is providing food and water to first responders and preparing for massive feeding efforts for residents.
