Posted on 8.September.2017 by Mike Winters | @amcomcap

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund If you live in or around the Houston, you probably know firsthand the damage and devastation that Hurricane Harvey has left in its wake. If you live elsewhere, you’ve probably seen the images on TV. They have not been exaggerated. People from all walks of life and small businesses of all kinds have been affected and rebuilding efforts have only just begun. But no matter where you are, there are several ways you can help Houston and surrounding areas.

Here are a few local charities that are taking donations for relief efforts.

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund by Greater Houston Community Foundation: Started by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, the GHCF fund is taking tax-deductible donations to help victims affected by the catastrophic flooding. You can give here.

United Way of Greater Houston Relief Fund: Launched to help meet storm-related needs and recovery efforts, 100% of your gift to the United Way Relief Fund goes to help the Houston community and our neighbors recover from Hurricane Harvey. Give here.

Houston Flood Relief Fund by JJ Watt: This fund started by the Houston Texans’ JJ Watt has already racked up an astounding $29 million in donations from over 160,000 people. Watt has said he’s making sure that all the money raised is going directly to helping the people of Houston who need the help. You can give here until Sept. 15, 2017.

Houston Humane Society: Helping to provide care and shelter for lost or abandoned animals in the area, the Houston Humane Society is a non-profit organization. They are accepting donations here.

Flood Relief for Texas Children’s Hospital: All proceeds donated to this fund will go directly to Texas Children’s Hospital. Give here. They are also asking for food and clothing donations.
