World on My Shoulders (WOMS) and Black Women’s Defense League (BWDL) have been fielding phone calls since last night from activists in Houston. They’ve been telling us what they need and how we can support them. These are people in and serving underserved communities that will likely go unsupported by relief efforts of more well-known organizations.
We will be going in when the roads clear, which is likely going to be Wednesday.
These are the needs in order of importance:
$1,500 to facilitate aide efforts
First Aid Supplies
Non-perishable Food items
Diapers (all sizes)
Children and Adult Hygiene items
Children’s uniforms (unisex)
Children’s clothing/shoes (unisex)
Women and Men clothing/shoes (Unisex jumpers)
Please note “Hurricane Harvey” on your donation.
