Sandra Bullock donates $1M to American Red Cross for Harvey relief

31 Août 2017

Many people are wondering how to help the thousands of victims of flooding caused by the storm that used to be Hurricane Harvey. The Red Cross said it has enough shelter supplies in Texas to support 28,000 people, and supplies for an additional 22,000 people are being sent in now.

The American Red Cross is asking that those who wish to donate money use their website at redcross.org or text the word HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10.

The Red Cross is also warning you to check the group collection donations.

Talking about her generous donation, the actress added: 'I'm just grateful I can do it. "Those folks aren't going to be able to go back home and they're going to stay with us at American Red Cross at our shelters", said Hughes.

Leslie Caliva, community volunteer leader for the chapter at 561 Fortress Drive, said the extent of the ongoing storm damage in Texas is staggering.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has also set up a special Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which is accepting tax-deductible donations. "Our Disaster Program Manager Linda Ehrsam and Disaster Program Specialist Ari Denson have deployed to Texas along with a number of other volunteers from our area to assist with the already massive and growing needs of those affected by Harvey".

Caliva said 40 Red Cross responders from Virginia have deployed, or are getting ready to deploy, to the Houston area, where they will provide health, mental health, disaster assessment and mass care services. Red Cross volunteers will be there the whole time, providing shelter for as long as people need it.

"You can do 1,500 meals a day out of this unit", said Maj.

"But when you see people in bad situations, you've got to put out your hand and help them". Not only can YOU and those around you give your money to noble organizations who are tackling the disaster and relief efforts head-on, but some of your fave celebrities and companies are stepping up in BIG ways to help those affected by the devastating event.

"I remember sitting in front of these windows and watching the emergency response vehicles from across the nation pull into Charleston, South Carolina and how it makes you feel", Welch said.
