Help those Impacted by Hurricane Harvey – National Relief Organizations

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner established this general fund to support those affected by the hurricane after receiving an “overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and companies who want to help.” It’s administered through Greater Houston Community Foundation. Donate here.

American Red Cross

The organization is on the ground in southeast Texas, helping provide shelter and services to flood victims. You can donate $10 by texting 90999 and give any amount on the Red Cross website.

GlobalGiving

The charity crowdfunding site is aiming to raise $2 million for Harvey relief. More than 9,000 people have donated nearly $800,000 as of Tuesday morning.

Here’s where GlobalGiving says the money will go: “All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the Gulf Coast.”

Direct Relief

Direct Relief specializes in medical aid. It’s supporting clinics and community health centers to provide care and supplies.

AmeriCares

AmeriCares is a health-focused organization. “Right now, AmeriCares is in Texas, distributing water, aid and mobilizing medical outreach with our local partners.” Donate here.

Portlight

Portlight has been assisting persons with disabilities affected by Harvey, in coordination with the Texas government, the Houston mayor’s office and FEMA.

The United Way of Greater Houston

The United Way of Greater Houston is collecting general funds for flood relief. You can donate by texting UWFLOOD to 41444 or by visiting their website.
