Ways to Give to Hurricane Harvey Relief
You guys, my heart is breaking watching all the news coverage of the disastrous hurricane in Texas. I just can’t believe how much devastation has been caused by Hurricane Harvey. An unprecedented number of people in the greater Houston area have been impacted by the flooding. It’s just been so terrible to watch all the children and families being rescued from the flood waters. I went to bed last night thinking about what I could do to help, and feeling a bit strange about carrying on with normal life with so much heartache and tragedy happening just a few states over.
I really cannot imagine being evacuated from my home and losing everything. It’s just so heartbreaking. I’ve thought about donating to the relief for a few days now and finally decided to do it this afternoon. I donated to Convoy of Hope but I wanted to put together a great list of places you can donate to if you also feel called to help:
- Houston Food Bank–-you can make a donation designated for disaster relief.
- The American Red Cross–you can donate online or text 90999 to donate $10. The organization is also asking for volunteers.
- The Salvation Army—providing food and clothing to victims seeking shelter
- Convoy of Hope
- The Texas Diaper Bank
- Austin Pets Alive
- Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund by Global Giving
- Houston Coalition for the Homeless
- Feeding America
- Reach out to your local church and see if they are putting together any donations for the hurricane relief. Many are even sending care packages and food.
I’ll be praying for everyone impacted by this terrible storm. God bless the great people of Texas. xoxo
Thank you for this list Sarah! I hope everyone who can will make a donation.

Everyday I search my list of email to see if there is a new posting from you. Your pictures, ideas, and comments always inspire me and excite me to re-do or create or finish projects in my own home. Today’s message was perfectly timed, emotional, and will encourage your readers to reach out and help the flood victims in my state -Texas. Thank you!

Janet, you just made my day. You don’t know how much that means to me! Thank you so, so much. Big hugs to you my friend! xoxo
That was so kind of you to take the time to put the list together. Thank you!
Thank you for the list. Praying for Texas ❤️
Thanks for the list. There are 2 others that give almost 100% of your donations. One is Franklin Graham’s Ministry, Samaritan’s Purse—samaritanspurse.org. The other one is Feed the Children–feedthechildren.org. If you give to one of these, specify that it’s for Texas Flood Relief victims.
These and the ones listed above would all be great. They desperately need our help in Texas. Thanks Sarah for spreading the awareness. Thoughts and prayers for Texas. <3

It is so heartbreaking to see and hear about. Thank you for sharing this list of ways to give. Many feel so helpless in times like this, so it’s great to give others direction on how to help.
Thanks for sharing the list and I agree with Janet, you have a wonderful, helpful blog and I’m always waiting for the next post!

Thank you Rondell, that really means SOOO much to me!!
Sarah, another great place to donate is Samaritans Purse (this is where I donated to the Texas disaster relief yesterday)❤️
That is so awesome Patty xoxo
Thank you Sarah for this information. It is so devastating what has happened to all those people. Just made my donation. Was just undecided where to donate too but found it when you posted. Convoy of Hope got mine too. PrYers to all of those effected.
That’s so awesome Doreen, I love Convoy of Hope!
You are so, so sweet. When I watch the news, I want to jump on a plane and get right in there to help. I think you’ve done a wonderful thing listing ways to help. I saw your video on IG and you were very straight forward and caring with your message.
Thank you Sarah for the places to donate for the victims of Hurricane Harvey! Another one is WCDisasterRelief@aol.com. I personally know the lady who is organizing for this fund. They will be feeding free meals for the victims and all helpers for the next six to nine months. She and another friend of mine drove a uhaul truck to the ones that went through Hurricane Matthew last year. It is heartbreaking to see this happening as I have cousins going through the cleanup right now. I am proud Texan. Thank you to all for your prayers and donations. Remember Montana too.
This is great info Susan, thank you so much for sharing!
