The community of Houston is thankful beyond words for the outpouring of support from around the world, to assist the Hurricane Harvey Relief and cleanup efforts. As you saw in media reports, Hurricane Harvey brought unprecedented devastation to the Houston area and the Texas Gulf Coast. 

In keeping with the Chabad philosophy that another's material needs is our spiritual work, we have been doing the best we can to alleviate some of the hardship that people continue to endure as a result of the storm and we are grateful to all who have joined with us in this effort. When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Chabad Harvey Relief mobilized immediately to meet the needs of the community and beyond. As a grassroots organization with branches in many parts of the city, we received many calls for help. We responded by sending rescue boats and vehicles as well as food, cleaning supplies, cleaning help, babysitting help, hugs and more. As we saw how many people lost everything, one of our volunteers came up with the idea of an amazon registry for people from all over the world to be able to gift flood victims (our floodie buddies) with essential items that needed to be replaced.

To date the Chabad Harvey Relief Fund has been used for a wide range of relief efforts including the high cost of the immediate acquisition and distribution of relief supplies, food preparation and delivery, storm clean up, trucking, emergency cash assistance, temporary housing, supply & food pantry, command and call center, warehouse distribution center, tefillin, mezuzot and much more. Grants were also made to the families stuck on the islands from Irma & Maria, for their urgent evacuation needs, before their own campaigns were able to get off the ground. We purchased, delivered and set up 30 sukkahs for flooded families just in time for the holiday.

We are focusing as well on the emotional and spiritual recovery of the community through uplifting and educational programming addressing the aftermath of Harvey, including Shabbatons, rallys for children, a sukkos extravaganza held at the flooded United Orthodox Synagogues, programs for families flooded and with special needs children, over $200,000 in financial assistance to Jewish day school families and many more programs in the near future offered through our 11 Chabad centers in Houston and 1 in Corpus Christi.
