With the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey on Texas and the Gulf Coast, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has provided information on ways local governments or individuals can support disaster relief efforts.

FEMA has created information on how money, resources and time can be donated through trusted and reputable organizations:

Many volunteer- and faith-based organizations are helpful in disasters.

In addition, donations for disaster survivors of Hurricane Harvey may be made to:

American Red Cross 

or the

Salvation Army 

For anyone who wants to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey,

donating money is the fastest and most effective way to do so.

Disaster workers in Texas urge people NOT to make unsolicited donations of material goods.

Your donation dollars will go where they are most needed.

Monetary donations ensure that supplies can be purchased locally so they are fresh,

and those purchases then support and help local businesses who may also have been affected.

Not only that, there are no issues of cataloging, storing, or transporting items into stricken areas.
