Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts in Houston, SanAntonio, and More

Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts in Houston, SanAntonio, and More

Texas was hit very hard by Hurricane Harvey and the rain is still coming. San Antonio didn’t get much compared to other locations. Many of the people who have been evacuated from the coast are already in San Antonio. We are expecting 10,000 more evacuees from Houston soon.

The San Antonio Food Bank is coordinating food efforts to help ALL of Texas right now.
