How much of my donation goes to administrative fees?

The Salvation Army does not place an administrative fee on disaster donations.  If you donate to Hurricane Harvey 100 percent of the gift will be used in support of that event.  It may be used to provide food and drinks to survivors, cleaning supplies and other essential commodities, direct financial aid to those affected, or to support disaster relief workers serving in the area.

I want to volunteer or have a group of people who want to help

The Salvation Army only deploys trained and screened disaster workers who are affiliated with a local Salvation Army unit. If you have not been trained or just signed-up to become a disaster volunteer today, it is unlikely that The Salvation Army will deploy you to the disaster site. There may, however, still be opportunities for you to serve locally at your local Salvation Army unit. If you wish to join The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Service volunteer team the first step is to create an online profile, complete a simple application and make sure to keep your profile up to date. Click here to get started.

We do not recommend travel to the disaster site on your own, without being deployed through your local Salvation Army unit. Spontaneous volunteers arriving can impede the delivery of relief services and if you self-deploy, The Salvation Army makes no commitment to provide work, or any other form of support for you.

I have items that I would like to donate to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

We appreciate your generous offer of support. Unfortunately, The Salvation Army is unable to accept in-kind goods for disaster relief efforts at this time. The best way to help The Salvation Army relief efforts is to make a financial contribution. Monetary donations allow The Salvation Army the flexibility to quickly and efficiently meet the immediate needs of disaster survivors without incurring many of the costs associated with sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods.

You can make a financial donation in the following ways:

Mail Checks to:

I am in need of assistance

If you are a survivor of Hurricane Harvey, FEMA has put the following website together as a guide for services. https://www.fema.gov/hurricane-harvey

Individuals can register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov – it is the quickest way to register for FEMA assistance since the event will last several days and the full scope of damages may not be evident until the storm has passed. If you are unable to access the internet, you can also call at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362)
