Some Ways You Can Aid


How You Can Help Victims of Hurricane Harvey
Here are several ways in which you can aid those affected by Harvey: 
FEMA Administrator Brock Long encouraged Americans who want to help storm victims to connect with the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) online, which is coordinating donations and volunteers.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which accepts tax deductible donations for flood relief victims. The organization will accept checks, money orders, bank wire transfers, stock, corporate bonds and other marketable securities. For donation instructions, click here
Houston Texans star JJ Watt set up an online fundraiser called the Houston Flood Relief Fund on the YouCaring crowd funding site. Watt has personally donated $100,000 to those who've been affected by the storm. 
The American Red Cross is accepting donations by phone and online. Donors may text HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation, or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.

Best way to help after  is to make a financial donation to a disaster relief charity. Here's how to support .

WBOC's "Bless Our Children" campaign, normally active during the holiday season, has been activated for the next month to accept donations to aid young victims of the storm. Online credit card donations may be made at , clicking on the 'rising tide' logo at the top right of the page; or donations, made payable to Bless Our Children, may be mailed to WBOC-TV, 1729 North Salisbury Blvd, Salisbury, MD 21801.

(Blood needed)
 Blood Bank of Delmarva (BBD) is asking local residents to help it meet an URGENT request for over 2000 units of blood from fellow blood banks in Texas and across the Gulf coast to deal with the storm tragedy.  Call 1-888-8-BLOOD-8 or visit to book an appointment.
