Hurricane Harvey is wreaking havoc along the Texas Gulf Coast, and the devastation doesn’t look to stop anytime soon. Waters continue to rise and relief shelters swell.
The death toll sadly has risen to 9, and relief experts predict that 30,000 will need to evacuate their homes. Estimates of the cost of recovery range from $30 to $100 billion.
The question is, “How can we help?” “How can our practice help?” Below are a host of agencies you can donate to, but you can also rally your customer/patient base.
