Hurricane Harvey Evacuees Need Diapers and Here's How You Can Help
Here's where to donate money and supplies for Texans in shelters.
When the call for disaster relief supplies goes out, many are quick to donate canned food, blankets, and clothing, but there's one item that becomes a stark necessity in the wake of tragedy like Hurricane Harvey: diapers.
Under the duress of leaving their homes, many evacuees don't have the time or mindset to pack them before they leave, and, many of the shelters helping them don't have stockpiles for babies and senior citizens. It not only creates even more problems for parents and caregivers, but can also be a main cause in the spread of illness.
WATCH: Houston Strong
The good news is there are several nonprofits working to get diapers to where they're most needed in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas. While Texans can bring physical packages of diapers to their drop-off locations, the best way for those outside the state to help them is to donate money to the following organizations or help purchase diapers on Amazon.com for their wishlist.
These are the two organizations that are in need.
Texas Diaper Bank
- This nonprofit is still in need of diapers, pull-ups, and adult incontinence underwear for evacuees across Texas. You can help them by fulfiling their wishlist on Amazon.com or donating any amount through their website.
