Hurricane Harvey has been a devastating event to Houston, Texas and its surrounding areas. The category 4 storm has forced thousands of residents off their property and claimed the lives of five. These survivors face a profound road ahead. Home and lives must be rebuilt and many onlookers have asked how they can provide any help to this unfortunate event.

Fortunately, there are several ways you can help Texan residents impacted by this tragedy. Here are a list of ways you can help:

ITunes:


The Salvation Army: To donate money, you can visit GiveSalvationArmy.org or call 1-800-725-2769. The organization also needs volunteers to deploy into affected areas (details are available here).

The South Texas Blood And Tissue Center: The center is in need of blood donations from those in fit physical condition. All donations must come from those 18 or older or who complete a parental consent form.
