For those who aren’t physically in southeast Texas, the sum total of the damage from Hurricane Harvey is hard to fathom — but media reports, including pictures of the water level heights, or of people wading through their flooded houses, gives an impression of the utter devastation.
Texas Monthly, which has been on-the-ground covering the hurricane, published a list of ways how individuals from far and wide can help provide relief to those who have been devastated by Harvey. It is sorted by subject, and includes:
- The Texas Diaper Bank and the The Driscoll Children’s Hospital (which is also accepting blood donations
- The Houston Press issued a list of the many food banks accepting donations.
- The Texas SPCA is providing shelter for some of the many displaced pets
- Austin Pets Alive! is doing the same work, and also takes in-kind donations
- Portlight, which provides for medical technology needs in the area, takes donations via PayPal
- Direct Relief USA is providing medical supplies, too, including prescriptions
- The Houston Coalition for the Homeless is helping provide for the homeless in the region.
