Hurricane Harvey:  How You Can Help

 

By now you've seen the photos of the disaster happening in Houston, TX and surrounding areas as a result of Hurricane Harvey.  Homes flooded, cars submerged, nursing home residents stranded in waist deep water, neighbors and rescue groups evacuating people and pets.  Most of us are trying to figure out how we can help.  We put ourselves in the shoes of someone who has lost everything and we try to figure out what they might need.  Before doing anything, take a deep breath and a moment to learn about how you can really help.
