With the situation in Texas only getting worse over the next few days, don't wait to help. With such a large area affected by the hurricane-force winds and torrential rains that have come along with the storm, on-the-ground help is extremely stretched. The Red Cross is an organization that has the infrastructure to help on such a large scale, but even their resources are stretched by such a cataclysmic event. Consider donating to the Red Cross today to help their efforts to aid the millions of people in Harvey's path.
