Vetted Organizations and Charities You Can Donate To Help the Victims of Hurricane Harvey

Everyone can do something to help

The rains continue to devastate southeast Texas. The images and video from cities and towns battered by Hurricane Harvey are heartbreaking—families separated; the elderly waiting for hours in waist-deep water; the panic of people as the water level rises.

It’s easy to feel helpless when outside of the area watching a national disaster unfold from a computer or TV screen. However, there are ways to help. Here is a listing of credible charities and organization that are accepting donations ranging from money to diapers.
