Ways to Help #Harvey Storm Victims

Our hearts go out to all the Harvey hurricane and flood victims. If you are looking for ways to help, the New York Times recommends these national organizations:

The American Red Cross is accepting donations on its website. You can also text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10.

AmeriCares takes medicine and supplies to survivors.

Catholic Charities provides food, clothing, shelter and support services to those from all religious backgrounds.

Donations to the Salvation Army can be made online, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769) or texting STORM to 51555.

AABB, which coordinates a task force to manage blood collection efforts during disasters, put out a call on Sunday for blood donations in the aftermath of Harvey. Most in demand: those with type O-positive blood.

If you know of other trustworthy organizations and local drives, please post them in the comments section.
