As we all pay close attention to the news and reports coming out of Houston, we wanted to share and promote some resources we’ve gathered from our colleagues in the area. While the toll of the devastation is still growing, if you are inclined to help now, here are some options.
The Texas Tribune has compiled a great list of ways to help: https://www.texastribune.org/2017/08/28/hurricane-harvey-relief-efforts-how-help/
- Houston Food Bank http://www.houstonfoodbank.org/
- Texas Gulf Coast Red Cross http://www.redcross.org/local/texas/gulf-coast/local-chapters/houston
- JJ Watt’s fundraiser com/jjwatt
- The Houston Independent School District is seeking both financial contributions and donations of food, clothing and school supplies: http://blogs.houstonisd.org/news/2017/08/29/national-groups-can-donate-supplies-to-hisd-students-and-families/
Our hearts go out to the entire Houston area community. We’ll continue to be in touch with our colleagues in Houston and share updates and requests for resources as they come to us.
