Hurricane Harvey Volunteers Needed

EMERGENCY Hurricane Harvey Shelter Relief Volunteering Needs:

Lakewood Church in Greenway Plaza Area –   https://www.lakewoodchurch.com/Pages/Hurricane-Relief.aspx?sourcecode=17DRLW

George R. Brown Convention Center Downtown a few minutes from UH –                              http://www.grbhouston.com/george-r-brown-emergency-center/

Red Cross – http://www.redcross.org/local/texas/gulf-coast/local-chapters/houston

Do what you can, when you can. Please take your own food and drink when you volunteer – leave it in your car in a cooler.  Wear comfortable shoes. Wash your hands when you can and definitely before you eat. If you have any open wounds or are ill, it is not a good idea to volunteer. Instead, you can donate baby wipes, new underwear and etc. Each place has dire needs, so feel free to join or contact them.

Shout out to Ton “T.J.” La,  AMSA National Representative, Student Editor of The New Physician magazine, and BCM MD/JD student for initiating volunteer efforts for Hurricane Harvey relief.
