How to Help in Hurricane Harvey’s Wake
Over the past few days, we’ve witnessed the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey play out in the Houston area and across the Gulf Coast. As more and more stories of hardship and loss come to light, our thoughts turn not just to the well-being of our clients throughout that area and associates in our Houston office, but also to the many challenges ahead for everyone impacted by this tragic event. Just like you, we’re eager to provide assistance for all those left in Harvey’s wake by supporting relief organizations with the resources to deploy the necessary supplies and aid.
The devastation already weighs heavily and the road ahead is long, but for those who wish to join us in supporting the people affected by the storm, there are some ways to help now.
Our Houston-based strategic partner, Bridgeway, has compiled a list of various efforts providing relief and support. The Houston Mayor’s Fund, which is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation, focuses on short-, medium- and long-term support for the most vulnerable. All organizations receiving help from this fund will be local, and they rely on local services for relief and recovery. The following organizations are also dedicated to helping the greater Houston area:
- Houston Food Bank
- Second Mile Mission Center
- Attack Poverty
- Baker Ripley
- Star of Hope
- Open Door Houston
- Angela House
In addition, TD Ameritrade’s relationship with the American Red Cross is another opportunity to help. TD Ameritrade, another of our strategic partners, will match each donation made on the site, doubling the impact of every dollar given. To make a contribution, please visit the TD Ameritrade Disaster Relief Donation site. (Donations made will help those impacted in Texas/Louisiana as well as in other disasters occurring across the country.)
Your donations will help make a difference in the lives of those affected by Harvey as they seek to recover and rebuild their lives.
