AUSTIN, TX. – Besides the fabulous work of the Austin Disaster Relief Network there are a wide variety of ways that you can give financially or help those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Sadly, the destruction from Hurricane Harvey is only just beginning because the historic category 4 storm dumped one years-worth of water on the Texas Coast in just 48 hours and the result has been epic flooding.
The good news is that The American Red Cross was immediately on the scene helping flood victims and the first way anyone can donate to disaster relief efforts in Houston and the surrounding area is by texting HARVEY to 90999 because they will then be able to make a quick $10 donation to the American Red Cross.
Beware Hurricane Harvey Scams
As with any disaster it’s not uncommon for scammers to come out of the woodwork because they use disasters to make a quick buck.
Never give your credit card number to anyone over the phone and if you make a payment online to a disaster relief organization make sure that it’s to a credible organization like the Red Cross or via a secure website.
