Two weeks after Hurricane Harvey dumped one of the largest rainfalls ever recorded in U.S. history, relief efforts are still underway across the Houston area. We have already offered extensive lists on how you can donate, but for those who want to volunteer, here are some organizations in need of help.
The Cajun Navy and Cajun Army, the volunteer groups of rescue workers who formed in Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, have pivoted from rescue to relief efforts in Texas. The organizations are seeking medical supplies, nonperishable foods, cleaning and hygiene products, baby supplies and demolition tools to donate across Texas from Port Arthur to Houston. Anyone interested in donating should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
