Send the Help They Need.
We have received a number of requests from the local community interested in helping out with hurricane and flooding relief in Texas. MANNA FoodBank has been in touch with our national partner, Feeding America. Sending supplies takes huge coordination and is costly and time consuming. These folks need assistance on the ground immediately, which is more easily achieved through financial donations. They have advised that donating funds to specific organizations on the ground in Texas is the most needed help.
Feeding America is coordinating a national relief effort in partnership with the food banks in the affected areas. Because of the scope of the disaster, national organizations are asking anyone interested in helping to please make a financial donation.
You can also find a list of charities providing support in the wake of the storm at Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is a charity rating organization that evaluates how efficiently nonprofits utilize donations.
Giving money directly allows those organizations to make immediate choices for the exacts needs they have.
Thank you for being part of a national relief effort!
