Follow-up: The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund at Greater Houston Community Foundation

After Hurricane Harvey hit at the end of August, we pulled together a list of nonprofits helping with relief and recovery efforts. We included Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF), which is administering the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund created by Houston mayor Sylvester Turner and county judge Ed Emmett. In a later post, we recommended giving to expert-sponsored funds in response to natural disasters. Once again, we listed the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund at GHCF.

Helping in the Wake of Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coast around 9:45 p.m. Friday, August 25, as a category 4 hurricane. Although Harvey has since been downgraded to a tropical storm, it continues to drop record amounts of rain as it moves across Texas. The National Hurricane Center advised Sunday evening that southeastern Texas was experiencing “unprecedented flooding,” and the New York Times reported the downpour was predicted to continue through Friday and that five persons had been reported killed by the storm. CNN stated officials had confirmed two deaths as of Sunday.
