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.
Also check out Coalition for the Homeless, Heart to Heart International, Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies (which provides emergency help for the elderly and disabled), Team Rubicon, Samaritan’s Purse (our personal choice), Save the Children, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, and Organizacion Latina de Trans en Texas. BakerRipley 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
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.
Donate to Local Food Banks
Food banks in the area are working in overdrive to remain fully stocked. Organizations worth investigating include: Brazos Valley Food Bank, Central Texas Food Bank, Corpus Christi Food Bank, Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, Food Bank of the Rio Grande, Galveston County Food Bank, Houston Food Bank, San Antonio Food Bank, and Southeast Texas Food Bank.

I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
