United Ways Offer Hope and Help in Response to Hurricane Harvey

Post

How can you support long-term recovery efforts?

It is in times of need that we discover the full impact of a community United. As Hurricane Harvey wreaks havoc on homes and communities across Southeastern Texas and Southwestern Louisiana—producing up to 50 inches of rain in some areas—United Ways across the region are helping families facing devastating losses from the historic flooding with an eye toward long-term recovery.

United Way Worldwide has established the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund, a national fund which will distribute 100 percent of donations for recovery in the affected areas, community by community, in the months and years ahead.

This fund will help local United Ways meet the storm-related needs and support long-term recovery throughout the affected regions. With your support, we can help rebuild communities.

Give now to support long-term recovery.
