Hurricane Beryl Relief

Hurricane Beryl Relief

The following is a list of ways to help those affected by Beryl

Hurricane Beryl made landfall in Matagorda, Texas on Monday, July 8 as a Category 1 hurricane and weakened to a tropical storm as it moved northeast through the state. Storms brought winds over 80 mph and heavy rain to the region.

Several community members caught in the effects of the storm died, including two people when trees fell on their homes. At least seven people died in the Houston area because of Hurricane Beryl. Additionally, over 2.3 million households were without power in the Texas heat. Storms left a trail of damaged power lines, debris, and downed trees.

How to help those affected by Beryl in Texas:

  • American Red Cross Gulf Coast Region: Responding to the areas that saw the brunt of Beryl’s destructive Category 1 winds. Funds will support the provision of shelter, meals, relief supplies, emotional support, recovery planning, and other assistance.
  • Food Bank of the Golden Crescent: Providing aid to neighbors who saw Beryl’s earliest impacts, including Matagorda, near where the storm made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast.
  • Houston Food Bank: Currently accepting monetary donations to meet the urgent need for meals after the storm and coordinating relief in 18 southeast Texas counties.
  • Houston Pets Alive: Providing shelter and care for displaced and lost pets impacted by Beryl.

International Supports:

  • Global Empowerment Mission: Providing food, water, hygiene supplies, tarps, generators, mattresses, and other necessary supplies to those impacted by Hurricane Beryl.
  • World Central Kitchen: Mobilized across the Caribbean to provide hot meals, water, and resources to communities hardest hit by Hurricane Beryl.
