Across the country, we have seen generosity, kindness, and heroism in response to Hurricane Harvey. Ordinary Americans have shown extraordinary resolve in a time of crisis. 

As America’s largest multiplier of good, we are calling on the Jefferson Awards Foundation community to lend a hand. No matter where you are, here are a few ways to help those in need. Please give what you can.

The Red Cross 

The Red Cross has launched a massive relief response to this devastating storm and needs financial donations to be able to provide immediate disaster relief. Help people affected by Hurricane Harvey by visiting, calling 1- 800-RED CROSS or texting the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Houston Food Bank

The Houston Food Bank is distributing food to children, families, and seniors in need throughout southeast Texas. Give now or learn more at

Texas Diaper Bank 

The Texas Diaper Bank is in need of cash and diaper donations to provide emergency diaper kits to the families that are being displaced due to Hurricane Harvey. Diapers are often not provided by disaster relief agencies. Donate here or learn more at

If you are activating a service project to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey, post about it using #jeffersonawards, and we’ll help get the word out. Thank you for your generosity in this time of need.
