How to help the Councils effected by Hurricane Harvey

The councils that have been significantly impacted includeSam Houston Area CouncilExternal Link (Houston), Three Rivers CouncilExternal Link (Beaumont), Bay Area CouncilExternal Link (Galveston), and South Texas CouncilExternal Link (Corpus Christi), as well as counties within the Alamo AreaExternal Link (San Antonio) and Capitol AreaExternal Link (Austin) councils.

The National Office is working with the leadership teams of these local councils to make sure their staffs and families are safe, as well as getting input on property damage at council offices and camps. As the flooding continues in those areas, National will continuously evaluate the needs of our people and facilities.

 

Given the extent of response efforts required, we understand it is important for first responders to focus on the most pressing emergencies without a well-intended influx of volunteers. As such, the best way to help in the near-term is to support relief efforts financially.

To facilitate this, we have established an online giving site to handle donations at: scoutingemergency.kintera.org/texasExternal Link.External Link 

Through this site, donations can be designated for specific councils or for all of the councils most affected by the flooding. These funds will be used to rebuild and restore BSA facilities and programs.

To provide immediate support for food and shelter needs in the area, we encourage you to donate directly to the American Red Cross and/or Salvation Army:

  • American Red Cross: Donate online at redcross.orgExternal Link, call 1-800-RED CROSS or text HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
  • Salvation Army: Donate online at helpsalvationarmy.orgExternal Link; by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY; or via mail to: The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 1959, Atlanta GA 30301
