Usually my weekend guides are in a lot lighter tone — such as new houston restaurants to eat at, where to grab a drink with friends, local art markets that are going on. I sat with three dogs, a cat, and my boyfriend this past week watching in disbelief as Hurricane Harvey destroyed homes just streets away from us. Somehow we were unscathed, and for days we watched helicopters circle the neighborhood. After donating Monday and seeing how many people were out helping, I decided I wanted to do something a little different this weekend.
Here are a ton of events you can go to donate and help Houston in it’s time of need. Let me know if I missed anything in the comments below and I’ll add it to the list. Have a great weekend, Houston & stay dry. Also if you’re looking for a more generalized list of places to donate — here is a great list from NPR (and another from Huffington Post) with a ton of organizations that are in need.
Note: Will continue to update this with events as found.
- Until 6PM Friday, they will be accepting donations at The Space HTX near Downtown. Click the link to see what they’re in need of!
- White Oak in the heights is having a big relief Benefit tonight — including places like Fitzgeralds, Tacos A GoGo, Onion Creek, and Christian’s Tailgate. Saint Arnold’s Beer will be all over & tons of live bands!
- This weekend ALL ComedySportz shows are free and they will be taking donations of non-perishable food, toiletries, baby supplies, bedding, and packs of new underwear.
- ALSO — heard today that as of now GRB, NRG, and BBVA are short on volunteer staff and new families are starting to show up.
