“These donations are paramount to us being able to provide those lifesaving needs to the Houston community. It provides shelter and food in those communities,” said American Red Cross spokeswoman Josett Valdez. “It helps us get volunteers down there. We have over 10,000 volunteers, 6,700 working in shelters right now. It’s key to getting them down to serve the community.”

Viewers can call (866) 367-3001 and ask that their donation go to victims of Harvey or, if they’d like to make a $10 donation, they can text the word HARVEY to 90999.
