If you would like to donate to an organization to assist with the Hurricane Harvey relief effort in Texas and Louisiana, listed below are a brief list of well-known and long established charitable and relief organizations. While there are certainly many other reputable organizations that are worthy of your support, please use caution when solicited by an organization that you are not familiar with. It’s my understanding that there are already scammers looking to take advantage of this tragedy and your generosity.
