Help Those in Need in Texas After Hurricane Harvey

Are you wanting to donate to the Hurricane Harvey relief? Here is a list to several organizations for those in need

Our hearts are with South Texas and all affected by Hurricane Harvey as the area starts to clean up and mend. We ask that you please continue to pray for protection and safety over the victims of this storm. May God be with all those effected by this storm.

If you would like to help with donations to this cause, here are a few suggestions.

The American Red Cross  is a great place to start by donating $10 with a single text message which makes it so easy.

Also check out Coalition for the Homeless, Heart to Heart InternationalPortlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies (which provides emergency help for the elderly and disabled), Team RubiconSamaritan’s Purse (our personal choice), Save the ChildrenSouthern Baptist Disaster Relief, and Organizacion Latina de Trans en TexasBakerRipley helps rebuild communities with long-term disaster relief.

 The Texas Diaper Bank is in dire need of diapers because they are not supplied by disaster relief agencies.

If you are able to donate blood, please go to your local American Red Cross to help replenish the local blood supply.

Support Pet and Animal Rescue

So many pets and wildlife are impacted by natural disasters as well. Check the Animal Defense League of TexasAustin Pets Alive, and SPCA of Texas to see how you might help their efforts.

The National Disaster Search Dog Foundation is already on the ground in Texas, providing rescue dogs to firefighters and other first responders to help find those in need of help.
