Help for the Victims of Harvey

Use the information  below to charitable organizations asking for donations. FEMA suggests you check with the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster for trusted resources. You can use CharityWatch.org(among other similar sites) to vet charities’  financials. The Red Cross spends 91cents of every dollar on its missions; you can stipulate that your donation go directly to help Harvey victims.

 

 

AMERICAN Red Cross-text 90999 to donate $10 or visit  at website at  www.redcross.org.

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, sponsored by Houston’s mayor, at www.ghcf.org

Houston Humane Society at www,houstonhumane.org OR San Antonio Humane Society at www.sahumane.org

United Way of Greater Houston Flood Relief at www.unitedwayhouston.org

Texas Diaper Bank at www.texasdiaperbank.org. We suggest you order diapers and/or wipes through Amazon, Walmart, or other source that will deliver to the Diaper Bank.

The Salvation Army at www,dusaster.salvationarmymyusa.org

 

Money is needed as clothing and food donations must be inspected and sorted. If you want information on using your donations for tax purposes, Forbes’ magazine has an article,”3 Tax Smart Ways to Give to Hurricane Harvey Relief.”

 

**If you have relatives affected by the flood or storm damage, warn them about contractors who show up uninvited to “bid” on projects.  Many victims of Hurricane Sandy were bilked out of money by crooks taking advantage of those in need.

 

Monthly Meeting

For our September General Meeting, our local Swing Left coordinators, Cynthia Spring Pearson and Kurt Anderson, are going to speak about Swing Left’s efforts here in Riverside.

Their presentation will cover some of the following:

• What is Swing Left

• What District the Riverside Swing Left has targeted and why.

• What does Swing Left do

• What folks can do as volunteers to help Swing Left’s efforts.

• How can you find out more about Swing Left

The 2018 midterm elections are the next best chance for progressives to regain power in our government—by taking back the House of Representatives.

The House of Representatives has 435 seats, 64 of which we consider competitive. These are the Swing Districts, where Congress is won and lost. To get a say in our government, we’ll need to win about 66% of them.

Riverside is within 50 miles of 5 of these winnable districts.

In addition to these speakers, we also hope to have a firm date for our planned citizenship classes, efforts to save DACA, and news about our upcoming booth at the Southern California Fair.

Schedule: 

6:00 p.m. Doors open for dinner and social hour

7:00 p.m. Meeting starts

8:30 p.m. Meeting ends

Reasonable accommodations will be provided for persons with disabilities at this event. Please contact DGR at (951) 394-1357 at least 48 hours in advance to make a request for accommodation or for more information.
