Texas Strong - Ways to Help

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and the devastating effects felt across Texas, the Military Child Education Coalition would like to offer our thoughts and prayers to all individuals and families affected. Heartfelt thanks to the responding units of the active, National Guard and Reserve components, the US Coast Guard, first responders, and our fellow Americans as they come together to help all those in need. We join with all Americans in support of those whose lives are forever changed.

Below are ways you can help victims of Hurricane Harvey: 

Donate Money: Click here to donate to the American Red Cross.

Donate blood: The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center desperately needs more than
2,000 units of blood.

Donate food and clothing: Done food, clothing, medical supplies, baby items, and
food to nearby shelters. Feeding Texas and the Texas Diaper Bank are seeking donations.

Help with clean up: Austin Disaster Relief Network is asking for toiletries, inflatable
mattresses, undergarments, and cleaning tools. The Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group
needs construction cleanup supplies -- debris containers, truck cranes, forklifts, ladders,
and nail guns.

Donate toys and supplies: Many children are at shelters and people are asked to
donate coloring books, puzzles, and other toys to the shelters.
