Within the past two weeks, two devastating hurricanes swept through our neck of the woods. Although we were lucky enough to escape the effects of Harvey and Irma, thousands of people are now displaced, remaining in shelters or in desperate need of help.
These brutal storms don’t end when the rain stops. Thousands of people will continue rebuilding their lives and homes for years and years to come. To contribute to those who lost everything during these destructive storms locally, please consider some of our suggested options:
100% of the individual donations given to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund will be distributed to local United Ways in the affected areas.
DAV’s disaster relief team is on the ground in Texas, Florida and surrounding areas that have been impacted. DAV provides relief supply kits and financial assistance to veterans and their families so they can obtain food, warm clothes and shelter in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and the associated rainfall have caused unprecedented severe flooding, forcing emergency evacuations and damaging thousands of homes and communities. Donations will be used to respond to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma until Habitat for Humanity’s role in meeting the need is met.
