3 Ways To Give Back After Hurricane Harvey

From sorting donations to distributing items, there’s plenty we can all do to assist our Houston community. If you’re looking to lend a helping hand, here’s how you can get involved.

Assist the Houston Food Bank

It’s Not Hou It’s Me, one of our favorite blogs, recently did a post detailing their volunteer efforts at a few locations. One of their destinations was The Houston Food Bank. After reopening their doors they jumped right into it and set a goal of moving 500,000 pounds of food each day to local shelters. If you’re interested in getting involved, they need assistance in their warehouse and also in the kitchen. Click here to sign up. Also, donations are welcome!

Lend a Hand to The Red Cross

It’s Not Hou It’s Me also helped out the Red Cross at the George R. Brown Convention Center! There’s plenty to be done, but most efforts seem to be focused on sorting donations, organizing lost and found items, distributing water and food, and assisting with medical needs if qualified. If you’d like to help out, click here to get involved.

Donations are welcome, but they’re only accepting certain items at this time. They include: diapers, wipes, baby powder (travel size), baby formula, bottles, baby food, bibs, power strips, extension cords, cell phone chargers, bedding and pillows, XL XXL clothing, wheel chairs, insulin, Lysol, Purell, hand sanitizer, and Tylenol/Aspirin.

Help Out The Convoy of Hope

this nonprofit organization jumped in quick and has already distributed truck loads (literally) of supplies to victims. There’s still a lot to be done so help is needed! If you would like to lend a hand, visit their site here. Of course, donations are appreciated!
