The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey has left thousands in Texas homeless and without the basic necessities for survival. Thankfully, we have seen the best of the human spirit come out in the storms’ wake. People are coming together to help their friends, family and even total strangers, but the victims of Harvey are not out of the woods yet.
At Skate World Pasadena, we wanted to give you a resource to learn about how to donate from afar, what to give and some tips for those who are on the ground in Texas.
Giving Monetary Donations after Harvey
Monetary donations are the best way to help people affected by this damaging storm, especially from a distance. If you are going to give a monetary donation, be sure to research the organization you are giving to beforehand. Organizations such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and United Way Relief Fund ensure your money will go straight to helping those who have lost everything.
Material Donations after Harvey
If you’d prefer to give something other than money, the folks in and around Houston are in great need of the following things:
- Baby formula
- Canned food
- Medical supplies
- Cleaning supplies
You can send diapers and other infant supplies to the Texas Diaper Bank located at 5415 Bandera Road, Ste 504, San Antonio, Texas 78238.
Even a Small Donation Can Make a Big Difference
It doesn’t matter how much you have to give. During times like these, every bit counts and the people of Texas can start their long recovery from this devastating natural disaster with your help.
