Harvey: Ways to Help

Posted in Uncategorized

A percentage of all sales placed during the month of September will go to the Texas Diaper Bank.

We’ve also compiled a list of a few additional ways to help the communities affected by Harvey:

1: Did you know diapers are not provided by disaster relief agencies? The Texas Diaper Bank is collecting any brand and any size baby diapers, pull-ups, adult diapers, formula, and wipes. They primarily need the larger sizes of diapers, pull-ups, and adult diapers. New or gently used baby items clothes, blankets, bottles, breast pumps, small toys, etc (no cloth diapers—many families will not be able to wash them). You can also help them out by selecting items on their wish registries set up via Amazon and Jet.

2: {UPDATE: No longer accepting donations} Until 6 pm today (August 31), Nikki Lane and the High Class Hillbilly crew will be accepting donations (list here). They’re heading to Texas tomorrow with a trailer full of goods collected this week. 4604 Gallatin Pike, Nashville, TN 37216

3: Two Son will be accepting donations during business hours 10–6 through Saturday (September 2). Requested items: socks, underwear, feminine products, diapers in all sizes, toiletries like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, baby wipes, and other every day essentials. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Aubrey at 918 Main Street, Nashville, TN 37206

4: Camping World of Nashville is accepting donations through Monday. They’ll be sending these items to the American Red Cross. 2618 Music Valley Drive, Nashville, TN 37214

5: Imogene + Willie Nashville is one of many drop off locations for donations being sent to Houston. I+W is the central hub for the 12 South, Green Hills, and Belmont/Lipscomb area. They’re requesting tools for demolition, rebuilding, and drying. For a full list of tools and goods needed, click here. Also accepting towels, bottled water, toilet paper, paper towels, toiletries, etc. Collections are taking place from 10–6 through Sunday (September 3). 2601 12th Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37203

6: Tomorrow (September 2) Holly Williams is donating 50% of all sales made at H. Audrey and all White’s Mercantile locations to some trusted charities she is working with in the area affected by Harvey.

The New York Times has compiled a list as well. See details here.

The efforts are great now, but these folks are going to have needs for many months to come. Do what you can, when you can!
