Posted on 8/30/2017 by Roger Marks

This week, individuals and organizations around the world are reaching out to provide support for those in Houston and the surrounding area impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The devastation is widespread—officials estimate 30,000 people may be forced to flee their homes as heavy rainfall continues to exacerbate the already catastrophic events of the past few days.

Below is a partial list of charitable organizations seeking donations and support to help them provide food, water, supplies, shelter, and medical attention to those affected. 

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
Houston Food Bank
Food Bank of Corpus Christi
South Texas Blood & Tissue Center  
Carter BloodCare
Texas Diaper Bank
United Way of Greater Houston   
American Red Cross  
National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD)

Whenever people are rushing to help in the wake of a disaster, fraudsters will work to take advantage of that generosity. To ensure your charitable donation goes to an organization that can do real good, check out Charity Navigator, Charity Watch, or these tips for the Federal Trade Commission.
