Help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
- Donations pay for Red Cross shelters and the volunteers who are supporting them. Last night, about 37,000 people sought refuge in 270 Red Cross and partner shelters across Texas. An additional 2,000 people stayed in 7 emergency shelters in Louisiana; and almost 60 people spent the night in evacuation shelters in Tennessee.
- Donations pay to transport more than 2,600 disaster workers to Texas, whether by plane, bus or car. More than 790 additional workers are traveling to Texas now. More than 270 workers are on the ground in Louisiana, with more on the way.
- Donations pay for shelter supplies like cots, blankets and hygiene kits for 85,000 people.
- Donations pay for the more than 430,000 meals and snacks we have served with our partners since the storm began.
- Donations pay for the gas and equipment to power our feeding efforts. Trailers of supplies to support 12 mobile kitchens, each able to produce 10,000 meals a day, are in Texas alongside more than 200 emergency response vehicles.
- Donations pay to support the mental health and health services professionals who support and care for evacuees – some 11,000 contacts have already been made.
- Donations pay for relief items like diapers and comfort kits that contain deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and other hygiene items for people forced from their homes. We’ve distributed 26,000 so far and this number will grow as people are able to return home.
- Donations also pay to provide warehouses, technology – and the people that make all of this help possible for Hurricane Harvey.
