The region between Houston and Corpus Christi, Texas have experienced unprecedented flooding and damage from Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall as a Category 4 storm on the state’s Gulf Coast on Friday, August 25. The loss of property and sheer devastation that several hundred thousand people are experiencing is catastrophic — and we want your help in bringing much-needed aid to our neighbors to the southeast. Fleet Feet Sports Houston has called on the running community to help them respond to their community's needs and we are stepping up.
Through the help of running communities all around the country, we estimate that we have collected and distributed over 25k shoes. We are currently NOT taking any more donations as those in Houston have received all that they can sort and distribute. Please consider working with your local non-profits if you still have shoes to give.
Here’s a list of non-profit organizations that are underway in raising funds to provide both immediate relief as well as help with long-term recovery efforts:
Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund — set up by Mayor Sylvester Turner of Houston, this fund accepts tax-deductible flood relief donations to exclusively help victims of this storm.
United Way of Greater Houston
American Red Cross
WE WILL KEEP THIS PAGE UPDATED WITH ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND WAYS YOU CAN HELP AS THE EFFORTS CONTINUE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!
