Hurricane Harvey: How to Help

Hurricane Harvey

With the scope of the damage of Hurricane Harvey, and more rain still to come, the effects will be felt for a long time. Here are some of the best ways that we can help our neighbors from here in the Austin area. 


1. Donate money

One of the biggest needs for the organizations on the ground helping evacuees is financial support to pay for their operations and staff. 

2. Donate space

You can offer to share your space at no cost to evacuees and emergency responders through Airbnb. Never been a host before? You can sign up as a first-timer. 

3. Donate blood

If you can safely travel to San Antonio or New Braunfels, the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center urgently needs blood donations, especially O positive and O negative. 

4. Donate time

 Contact the Red Cross or the Salvation Army to see how you can volunteer to help with the relief effort. 

5. Share information

Our YNPN Austin member base has a wealth of information, so please use the comments to share any other ideas and needs you know of, and please share this post with others who want to help.
