#HurricaneHarvey: How You Can Help

Here at Victory Girls, we’ve monitored the catastrophic Hurricane Harvey since it made landfall last week. The images coming from Houston alone are heartbreaking, but are also peppered with images of bravery and selflessness in the face of an extremely dire situation:

As you can see, our fellow Americans are in need, and Louisiana is about to be smacked as well. Plus FEMA is reporting that its response to Harvey is “quickly drawing down” reserves in its disaster fund. So here are six ways you can help the victims of Harvey:

DONATE:

Victims need donations. And lots of them. That takes cash. Here are three of the leading charitable organizations on the ground right now in Texas. Please give whatever you can, even if it’s just a few dollars. It all adds up, and it’s needed now more than ever:

1. Samaritan’s Purse

2. Salvation Army

3. Red Cross:

VOLUNTEER

The effects of this devastating hurricane, and now the succeeding tropical storm, will be felt for the foreseeable future, and armies of volunteers will be needed. Here are links to two agencies, including Samaritan’s Purse, that can help you sign up to volunteer:

4. This link will take you to the Samaritan’s Purse Volunteer Network page.

5. And this link will take you to the National Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster. Follow the links there to help the victims of Harvey.

6. If you live in the area and have a boat, call your local authorities and offer its use. Do it now:

We’re not liberals. We’re not conservatives. We’re not black, white, purple, or blue today. We are Americans, and we will stand as such in the face of this ongoing disaster.

Thank you in advance for whatever you can give. And please continue to hold Texas in your thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you, Jodi.

    Also, check with your local churches and charities. They may have projects set[ting] up to help.
    And, think long term. There will be houses to be rebuilt and other ongoing needs months from now, probably into next year. Organize something now (or call to find out what others are organizing) to help then.
