The number of Texans impacted by Hurricane Harvey grows each day and it will be weeks, if not longer, before we know the full extent of the storm damage along the Texas Coast.
Over the past few days we have begun to hear from our members in the storm areas and we would like to hear from you if you have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Let us know how you are faring and the most important ways we can support you by sending an e-mail to Chapter@USGBCTexas.org.
Please remember: While food banks in the area will be affected by an influx of people, financial donations, rather than food donations, are more beneficial to these charitable groups as food banks can purchase food at better prices. Please consider a financial donation to a food bank below rather than a food donation.
To add a resource to this list, send your information to Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.

AIRBNB: Volunteer your rental home or room through rental site Airbnb.com, which is connecting evacuees in the path of the storm with free, short-term lodging. Airbnb hosts in designated areas are able to volunteer their rentals through a sign-up program. That's also where evacuees can request lodging. The program has been activated in several cities, including Dallas, San Antonio and Austin. It will run through Sept. 1.
