YYC Tech Gives members have strong ties to Houston, Texas, with many of us having offices, colleagues, friends and family in and around some of the most hard hit areas of Hurricane Harvey.
Together, we would like to support the American Red Cross in its efforts now and what will be a period of great need in the aftermath of this disaster.
From the Red Cross:
Hundreds of thousands of people could seek assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey
Donations to the Salvation Army and the Red Cross can help provide relief to those affected by the storm
Relief efforts are just starting
More than 50 inches of rain have fallen in Houston, leaving many areas of the city underwater.
The Red Cross is helping those affected by Harvey, with hundreds of trained volunteers providing meals and shelter for victims, including enough cots and blankets to support more than 20,000 people.
