As Hurricanes Harvey and Irma continue to wreak havoc in Texas, Florida, the Caribbean, and beyond, we have the opportunity to come together as a nation and support those affected by these terrible natural disasters. While we've now reached the "aftermath" stage of Hurricane Harvey, Irma is currently moving through the Caribbean islands and Florida while Jose continues to brew in the Atlantic ocean. In other words, help is needed now more than ever. Below read up on how to help strengthen the relief efforts for these devastating natural disasters.
The Salvation Army: Donate online or by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY to both Harvey and Irma victims.
The American Red Cross: Donate to the national organization online; you can provide relief to Hurricane Harvey victims, Irma victims, or to general disaster relief. Find a blood donation site near you here.
Habitat for Humanity. Help repair the homes affected by both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma here.
