How You Can Help Hurricane Harvey Victims
Atlanta’s division of the Red Cross has already sent help to Houston, but others may be wondering what they can do to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Unprecedented flooding has left people stranded and without a home to call their own. These people need help. If you have the means to assist some of the victims, here are ways you can do it.
The American Red Cross is providing emergency assistance in the area. The organization is seeking donations to help the victims of flooding. You can text HARVEY to 90999 to make an automatic $10 donation. You can also call the organization directly at 1-800-RED CROSS to make a donation, or you can give online.
The Salvation Army is also taking donations in order to help the victims of the hurricane. Any person wishing to donate to the Salvation Army’s relief efforts may do so by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
Austin Pets Alive!
Many people are asking how they can help the pets that have been affected by the storm. While some shelters are allowing to bring pets, others are being forced to find alternative shelters or leave their pets behind. For many, leaving a pet behind is akin to leaving a child behind — a pain no person should have to endure. Austin Pets Alive! is providing aid to animal shelters affected by the storm. You can help the organization by visiting their website.
