Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort
As relief operations continue in the wake of the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey on the Gulf Coast of Texas, it is evident that additional support and aid is needed. If you wish to make a contribution to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, please be advised that a cash donation is the most effective and flexible way that voluntary agencies and faith-based organizations can address urgently developing needs.
Please do not donate unsolicited goods such as used clothing, miscellaneous household items, medicine, or perishable foodstuffs at this time. When used personal items are donated, the helping agencies must redirect their staff away from providing direct services to survivors in order to sort, package, transport, warehouse, and distribute items that may not meet the needs of disaster survivors.
Those interested in donating are urged to ensure and confirm that all contributions are administered by a reputable organization. It is important to note that personnel wishing to volunteer or donate their time should not self-deploy to the disaster area, but instead route their efforts through organizations already engaged in disaster relief.
At the national level, many voluntary-, faith- and community-based organizations are active in disasters, and are trusted ways to donate to disaster survivors.
