Information taken from United Way for Greater Austin
This past weekend's record-setting rains wreaked havoc on parts of Texas, with Hays and Caldwell Counties bearing the brunt. In response to the devastating floods, United Way for Greater Austin has set up a disaster recovery fund to assist those affected by the Memorial Day weekend floods. We are working with United Ways of Hays County, as well as local officials, to distribute these funds directly to those in need in the coming days, weeks and months.
Ways you can help:
- Support Central Texas flood recovery efforts by making a monetary donation here.
- Give by mobile to help your Hays County neighbors in need by texting FLOODS to 41444 to make a donation.
- Unable to make a monetary donation? Find out about volunteer efforts or how to donate non-monetary items by calling 2-1-1, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- We are collecting mops, brooms, Lysol spray and other cleaning items to help clean up affected homes. Please drop off any of these items at United Way for Greater Austin with our receptionist from 9-12 and 1-5 tomorrow (May 26). Hays County is completely sold out of these items already. If you stop by, take a photo in front of our Butter Half mural and tag us on social media!
Need help? Information on flooding and recovery resources is available by calling 2-1-1. On Saturday, UWATX initiated "Disaster Mode" by adding information on evacuations, shelters and other emergency resources to the 2-1-1 Navigation Center database.
