Where to Donate to Harvey Victims (and How to Avoid Scams)

Over 2 million people live in the city of Houston, TX recently affected by Hurricane Harvey. My parents grew up here and I still have a lot of beloved family and friends there. Luckily, everyone I know is making it ok. Thousands are not.

Don’t ignore the opportunity to help just because it doesn’t directly affect you. Here’s a great article from The New York Times on how you can help.

You can donate money to go fund me’s page or The American Red Cross. Links are attached in the article. You can also donate blood, supplies and food if you are near the area and want to help. Don’t have any money or items to spare? You can donate blood in any state to help future disasters. Find a donation center near you:

If you aren’t a fan of Red Cross and are hesitant about the Go fund me donations, call United Way Helpline at 211 and find out how you can help them. If you have a boat and can get there call 713-881-3100 to find out how you can help with rescues and evacuations. You can also make donations to help displaced animals at http://www.spca.org/give. 

The Texas Diaper Bank is accepting Diaper and wipe donations that can be mailed to:5415 Bandera Rd. Suite 504 San Antonio, TX. 78238.

Donate cash or supplies to charity organizations in your area who may have a way of delivering the supplies out of state. The opportunities are everywhere!

Remember, it may not be your home and you may not know anyone there, but it’s  moments like these that make up who we are as a country. Don’t just sit back and watch the news, get involved.
