Hurricane Harvey will have a lasting impact on the Gulf coasts of Texas and Louisiana. And the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) members will be there providing relief and recovery for years to come, and they will need your assistance.
The single best way individuals and businesses can help disaster survivors is to donate money to a recognized voluntary organization.
Cash doesn’t need to be sorted, stored or distributed, and it allows the voluntary agency to use the donation towards the needs that most urgently need addressing. The funds can also help stimulate the local economy.
For over 44 years, National VOAD’s 100 member organizations have been helping communities worldwide.
Visit the National VOAD Hurricane Harvey Response page to learn how to help those affected by the storm and subsequent flooding.
Also find a complete list of National VOAD Members’ donation pages here.

As we say in our Dedication in our book… thank you to all volunteers around the world who give their heart, soul, energy, and time unselfishly for the betterment of our society. j & B
