Following Hurricane Harvey, victims suffer from a significant price increase in gas, clean water, and necessities. Fuel prices range from $8-20/gallon in Houston and its surrounding cities, while a case of water is as little as $99. If you want to make a difference and you can afford it, consider donating to one of the following organizations:

Texas Diaper Bank 

The Texas Diaper Bank was established by ten local United Methodist Churches in San Antonio, Texas. They are dedicated to minimizing the diaper gap in both children and seniors. You can send donations directly to them by clicking the link above or checking out their Amazon Wishlist here.

Feeding Texas

If you’re running low or not very fond of donating money, consider donating food. Feeding Texas is a state-wide, nonprofit organization that focuses on providing food to the most vulnerable in their community. Feeding Texas distributed more than 300 million pounds of food to its surrounding areas in 2016. You can send donations by clicking the link above.

Animal Defense League of Texas

The Animal Defense League of Texas, along with other organizations, have been working to get animals shelter. At this time, they are not seeking fosters. Though, the Animal Defense League of Texas needs animal supplies now more than ever. You can make a donation by clicking the link above or by checking out their Amazon Wishlist here.

Save the Children

Save the Children is working hard to provide displaced families with family-friendly relief supplies, such as strollers, cribs, hygiene products, etc. Your donation can be directed in specific areas, such as children’s play area, portable living spaces, or baby supplies. If you would like to donate to Save the Children, click the link above.

Get Involved Locally

Participate in local organizations that will directly impact the victims of Harvey. These organizations can be found at your university, church, or in the local community. You can participate by joining and/or donating to organizations that are raising funds to donate to victims of Harvey. Click the link above for frequent updates on ways to get involved locally.

    People who try to benefit from disasters are absolutely disgusting. Luckily there are so many groups, as you have highlighted here, who legitimately want to help.

    This is a great suggestion list! We donated through our church to one of our denomination’s ministries. $9k total was sent. Sure hope it helps!

    It is really sad that people take advantage of others when they have lost so much. There are so many good people out there that help so many and we can’t thank them enough. Thanks for sharing these organizations and ideas.

    Thanks for this information. I was just asking someone where or how I can help.

      It’s definitely a lot of information out there where to go but some places aren’t as trustworthy as others. I hope that you found someone who you trust to donate to.
