How to Help Houston Flooding

Aug. 28, 2017

HOUSTON -- With flooding from Hurricane Harvey inundating the Houston area and southeast Texas, Houston Athletics is focused on the safety of citizens of the city.

For those of you outside of the area looking to support the rescue and recovery efforts through charities on the ground including the Red Cross, we encourage you to do so. The international network is on the ground in Houston providing emergency relief. To donate to the Red Cross, please click here.

The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund will accept tax deductible flood relief donations. The fund is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation.

Methods to Donate:

Online Credit Card Donations: Visit www.ghcf.org. Online credit card donations will be assessed a small fee, typically 3%, by the credit card companies. Donors have the option of increasing their credit card donations to cover this fee.

Checks/Money Orders: Mail to Greater Houston Community Foundation, 5120 Woodway Drive, Suite 6000, Houston, TX 77056.

Transfer Cash by Wire: Wire To: JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.
Houston, TX
ABA # 021000021
For credit to: Greater Houston Community Foundation
A/C#: 849170287
For further credit to: Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Men's Basketball Donations - Head Coach Kelvin Sampson is calling upon all basketball coaches (boys' and girls high schools, men's and women's NCAA Division I, Division II and Division III and NAIA) to donate 20 of their school's T-shirts and 10 pairs of shoes to the University of Houston Men's Basketball program. All sizes and numbers will be accepted and greatly appreciated.

From there, Sampson and the Men's Basketball staff will work with officials from the Red Cross, Star of Hope and Greater Houston Community Fund/Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to distribute to those in need.

Teams are asked to send their donations to:

Coach Kelvin Sampson
University of Houston Men's Basketball
Guy V. Lewis Development Facility
3480 Cullen Blvd.
Houston, TX 77204

Here's an interactive map that shows different shelters, pet shelters, and food distribution centers around Texas.

The Houston Chronicle has live Hurricane Harvey updates here that may pertain to residents still in the city or evacuees.

The Chronicle also has a complete list of local highways and roads that are inaccessible or shut down due to flooding.
