Here's an important message from United Way of Greater Houston:
"We have launched a relief fund to help support our community in the aftermath of Harvey. The devastation is great and is growing. Our community will need incredible resources to recover.
United Way’s first priority will be safety, shelter and basic needs, like food. Once the community is stabilized, United Way will focus on long-term recovery efforts.
United Way of Greater Houston maintains a disaster reserve fund, which will be tapped for this storm, however because of the widespread devastation already seen, the needs of those impacted will far exceed existing resources.
Year-round, United Way invests in our community’s first responders, like the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, so they can respond quickly in times of disaster, as they are doing now. We will continue to support their efforts to provide immediate relief."
How you can help:
Because the area served by the United Way of Greater Houston is the worst of the worst hit by Harvey, we've added a drop-down designation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund on our Donate page at https://uwshr.givenow.stratuslive.com/givenow.Once there, click on the box "Apply this gift to a specific program or cause" and choose the drop–down designation "Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund."
We will pass on 100% of your donations to the United Way of Greater Houston. Thank you for your help!
