The images coming out of Houston and surrounding towns since Harvey hit last weekend have been heartbreaking to see. Everyone in the O&G business has friends, colleagues, and family in the area, and our thoughts and prayers are with them as they go through this catastrophic event.
For those of us on the outside looking in, the inability to help directly – to get to that person stranded on top of their car – can be emotionally overwhelming. But there are other ways we all can pitch in and help the folks displaced by the hurricane. Here are a few.
- American Red Cross. The American Red Cross has issued an urgent call for donations. You can donate here.
- Local food banks. Here’s a list of food banks. For more information on these and other food banks in Texas, go to FeedingTexas.org.
- Houston Humane Society. The Houston Humane Society is helping organize shelter and care for pets in the area. You can give here.
- Salvation Army. The Salvation Army is on the front lines providing help to those in need. Donate here.
