Help for Texas

By now, I am sure that you have heard about the terrible disaster and destruction wrought by Hurricane Harvey in South Texas and seen the frightening images on television. Thousands of families have lost their homes or are stranded without food, adequate shelter, or medical care. I am sure that many of you are wondering what you can do to help out.

I just wanted to pass on this list of charitable organizations who are operating in the area and could use your assistance. I have tried to find the ones where your contribution will go the farthest, but if you know of others we should add, please let me know and I will put them on my blog as well.

In addition, Golden Gate Wine Cellars will be donating 15% of all sales over the next week to support the relief effort. Visit for more info.

All of these organizations are also in need of volunteers who can help out, both in Texas and working from other states to support the relief effort. Click on any of the links above and call to find out how you can help.
