 Donate money The best way to help Texans affected by disasters is to donate money to charitable agencies that are experienced in disaster relief, officials say.Organizations such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army are trained to respond to disasters such as Harvey, which is pounding the Texas Gulf Coast."Right now the best thing people can do is donate money," said Katrina Farmer, director of American Red Cross offices in San Angelo, Abilene and Wichita Falls, Texas cities far from the coastline. "This is going to be an expensive disaster."While people often want to donate items, Farmer said that isn’t as helpful as money."People should not go out and buy things, because they might not be needed," she explained.Organizations participating in hurricane relief efforts include:

Facebook also says it will match every dollar raised through its platform, up to $1 million. Funds will go to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund to support local recovery and rebuilding efforts.

Feeding Texas

The organization Feeding Texas has mobilized to assist families affected by flooding. Coastal food banks are currently distributing food to the public while inland food banks are assisting Red Cross shelters with items needed by refugees. Those who are in need of assistance can call 2-1-1 to learn where distribution centers are located. Local food banks are in need of staple foods such as powdered milk, cereal, pop-top meat, canned fruit, peanut butter, jelly and fruit cups. Cleaning supplies will also be accepted.

 

 

Texas Diaper Bank

The Texas Diaper bank is accepting diapers for Harvey victims (they need large sizes most of all) and donations. Their Facebook page is listing ways to donate, and they are suffering from more donations than their volunteers can sort, so they're looking for additional volunteers.

 

 

Save The Children

Save the Children is providing infant and toddler supplies at all three mega shelter sites - including portable cribs and sheets, strollers, infant and toddler hygiene kits and portable washbasins - and will be distributing donated children's clothing and school supplies in the coming days. In addition to supplies, Save the Children's Child-Friendly Spaces are safe, well-supervised areas within shelters where children can play, socialize and begin to recover from the disaster, while allowing their parents to concentrate on addressing the family's immediate and longer-term needs. 

To support Save the Children go to SavetheChildren.org or text Hurricane to 20222 to donate $25 to the Hurricane Harvey Children's Relief Fund, added directly to your mobile bill. 

 

 

Blood donations

According to the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center, hospitals in Texas are facing blood shortages. The organization is seeking blood donations in order to stock up trauma centers that are seeing an influx of patients in the aftermath of the storm.

 

 

Help animals rescued in Texas floods

Several organizations are helping pets displaced by the disaster.

Donations to The Humane Society of the United States help the group work with local officials to transport, rescue and care for animals.

The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services accepts donations online or by mail, and nearby residents can also drop off donations of items like pet food and cat litter.

 

 

Apps for Hurricane Harvey and other disasters

There are dozens of apps available to help you in the event of an emergency, including those that offer alerts for disasters and weather and apps for keeping emergency contacts or pertinent medical information easily available for first responders.

We wish all everybody  the best of health, please stay safe
