#TEXASSTRONG: Ways to Help and Request Assistance - Hurricane Harvey

Thursday, September 07, 2017


While it seems like the rest of the world is moving on, Houston and much of Texas are still recovering from Harvey, and we'll be recovering for awhile. As of today, 9.7.2017, there are still parts of Houston under water, people still living in shelters, houses being gutted, volunteers and donations still needed. A lot of my friends from out of state have asked how they can help with the effort down here.  Here is a list of ways that you can help. I will be updating this post and bookmarking to it from my home page as I discover more links.
