Why Red Cross?
The American Red Cross is helping the people affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and all across the Gulf coast. Shelters are open, truck loads of supplies are being distributed and volunteers in place. Ahead of Hurricane Harvey the Red Cross mobilized hundreds of trained Red Cross disaster relief workers, truckloads of kitchen supplies, and tens of thousands of ready-to-eat meals. Trailers full of shelter supplies including cots and blankets—enough to support more than 20,000 people arrived in Texas on August 25. The Red Cross is also working in close collaboration with government officials and community partners in both Texas and Louisiana. Learn more about the American Red Cross.
The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center will offer temporary shelter to over 5,000 Hurricane Harvey evacuees. Trusted World and the American Red Cross will partner to provide for these displaced individuals and families. Donations such as clothing (new only please) and toiletries are being accepted.
