Please Help the Families Affected by Hurricane Harvey


Hurricane Harvey made its initial landfall almost a week ago, and the impact continues to be felt across Southeast Texas. The loss of homes, possessions and, most importantly, of lives is indescribable. Our hearts are with everyone affected, and we know our generous community joins us in looking for ways to help.

The Toy Bank – Toy Industry Foundation

“There are currently tens of thousands of families – crowding Houston’s convention center – with no personal space and little if any of their personal belongings. We need to provide relief, comfort, and a distraction for these families while they wait for the chaos to subside.”  You can help by gathering newly packaged books, crafts, dolls, electronics, games, plush and more for all ages. Email The Toy Bank with your product donation form by September 15.


Delivering Good

Delivering Good has been developing a Hurricane Harvey relief effort with trusted community partners on the ground. They are collecting new apparel, home and children’s merchandise for the immediate needs, as well as those longer-term that will come over the next several months. The most pressing needs continue to be new apparel for men, women and children, underwear, socks, towels, sheets, blankets, comforters and pillows. Delivering Good is also accepting financial donations to help support their response.


Global Icons

Global Icons CEO Jeff Lotman has started a GoFundMe campaign for the Houston Food Bank. Global Icons will match donations up to $10,000. “We chose this charity for two reasons. First, they are on the ground helping people locally; second, 96% of the money we raise goes directly to food and supplies needed for disaster relief.”
