Like most people we've been following the aftermath of the storm in Texas. Here are a couple organizations that are working on the recovery in Houston:
Team Rubicon - is dedicated to disaster relief. Staffed by veterans and qualified volunteers they worked on rescue during Harvey, and are now working on relief and rebuilding.
Redcross - provides food, shelter, and health care for people displaced by Harvey. Right now they're caring for nearly 40,000 people displaced by the storm.
One of our editors, Anthony Bilotta, saw his home near Houston destroyed by flooding. His friends and family have started a fundraiser to help him and his family rebuild here.
Finally, we've added time to the Firecracker accounts of all the students we know of who were impacted by Harvey. If you don't see this time in your account please get in touch with us: firstname.lastname@example.org
