All of us at DYMI Construction wish to extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. While the hurricane may have ended causing tremendous damage in Texas, the flood damage is the worst this country has ever seen, with even more rain expected.
If you’re in a position to help and would like to do so, below are a few way to do so.
The Red Cross has already deployed a number of disaster relief workers to the area that are supplying things like shelter, blankets, and relief supplies. You can make a donation on the group’s website, via the phone by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS, or make a $10 donation by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999. If you’d rather help in person, the group has a volunteer sign-up page here.
The Salvation Army is also planning post-Harvey relief efforts and plans to offer long-term disaster relief as well. You can sign up to make a single donation to its efforts on the group’s website, or set up a reoccurring monthly donation.
South Texas Blood and Tissue Center
If you live in the south Texas area, the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center currently only has a day’s supply of blood and needs donations. You can schedule a time to donate by visiting the group’s website or calling 210-731-5590.
Texas Diaper Bank
The Texas Diaper Bank is asking for cash and diaper donations to offer emergency diapers for families that have been displaced by the hurricane. You can make cash donations on the group’s website, and specify you want your funds to go specifically for Disaster Relief.
