Wondering how you can help from so far away? Here are some great options to offer aid through reputable organizations:
Samaritan’s Purse is sending disaster relief units to Texas.
The Salvation Army Greater Houston Command Center.
Star of Hope – homeless shelter in Houston – go to sohmission.org and click on donation page or text URHOPE to 41444
Samaritan’s Feet is sending a shipment of their World Shoe, which protects feet from injury, infections, diseases and, because of an active anti-microbial agent, can actually treat infections as the shoe is worn.
You can also donate to help in the effort to rescue animals who were separated from their families or stray. Austin Pets Alive and Houston Pets Alive are shelters that are currently taking in and taking care of hundreds of animals affected by the hurricane.
