The outpouring of support to the people of our great state who were devastated by Harvey is truly heart warming. There are tons of ways to volunteer and give back to the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. Which is amazing. We thought it’d be a good idea to let you know of some local businesses and events that are helping. By all means, if you can donate money, do so. If you can go where needed to help, do so. But if you’re stuck at home and want to do something to help, why not attend some of the many benefits happening in our community as a way to show support and help out any way you can.
There are a ton of events and businesses that are donating to help Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. In fact there were so many that we just picked a few to highlight here and then we’re giving you a link to a giant list on Facebook below. Heads up… most of them are this Labor Day weekend. We will update the highlighted list as we find out about more of these great events!
