As you know, Hurricane Harvey destroyed the Texas Coast and it's predicted that it will drive nearly 30,000 people of the Greater Houston area into shelters. Hearing this and seeing the footage of my fellow Texans in distress, I'm left with the question, how can we help these men, women and children that are left with simply nothing but the clothing on their backs?
As a resident of Texas, as well as having family affected by the hurricane, this truly hits home for me and I want to help.
While there are several ways to donate to this cause and many charities to support, I wanted to reach out to those that I know to see if we could join together and help raise money for United Way of Greater Houston, which has launched a relief fund for storm-related needs and recovery. The organization says it already maintains a disaster relief fund, but anticipates the needs of Harvey will far exceed those existing resources.
If you choose not to donate here, I ask that you find it in your hearts to find an organization of your choice to donate/volunteer. It's amazing thing what can happen when we all join together as one.
