2017 Hurricane Relief

In 2017, Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria impacted Texas, Florida and the Caribbean. These storms are among the most devastating on record. Harvey alone caused an estimated 200 billion dollars in damage, making it the costliest natural disaster in US history. Given the catastrophic extent of the damage, we expect a recovery period lasting several years in some areas.

If you would like to help those affected by these storms, please consider making a donation of time or funds to one of these organizations.
