United Way of Galveston has launched the Harvey Relief Fund to help support Galveston and our neighboring communities in the aftermath of Harvey. The devastation will be great and Galveston County will need incredible resources to recover.
United Way’s first priority will be safety, shelter and basic needs, like food. Once the community is stabilized, United Way will focus on long-term recovery efforts.
United Way of Galveston maintains a disaster reserve fund, which will be tapped for this storm, however because of the widespread devastation already seen, the needs of those impacted will far exceed existing resources.
Year-round, United Way invests in our community’s first responders, like the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, so they can respond quickly in times of disaster, as they are doing now. We will continue to support their efforts to provide immediate relief.
If you would like to help, please make a donation to the Harvey Relief Fund. 100% of the donations will be used for Harvey recovery efforts. If there is a specific community that you would like to send your donations to, we will forward them in full to the United Way that represents that particular community.
If you would prefer to send a check, please write “Harvey” in the Memo line and mail to: 2200 Market St., Suite 850, Galveston, TX 77550
