How to Help Hurricane Victims from Dallas

Hurricane Harvey ReliefJoin Ricochet Fuel and thousands of other Dallas-Fort Worth residents in helping those effected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Today’s Ricochet Fuel blog post features simple, effective ways in which you can assist those effected most by this season’s devastating hurricanes.

  1. Central Texas Food Bank

To support our Houston neighbors, Ricochet Fuel encourages Dallas-Fort Worth residents to donate to local charities working directly in neighborhoods most effected by Hurricane Harvey. Donations to the Central Texas Food Bank, for example, provide immediate relief for children, families and elderly adults. Here, even a small amount makes an impact: $10 is enough to provide 40 meals for your Houston neighbors in need.

  1. American Red Cross

In times of disaster, the American Red Cross provides clean water, safe shelter and hot meals to those most impacted. With services stretching across the South, this one-stop option is an easy and effective choice to support victims of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Donate online, but be prepared for slight delays: The American Red Cross website is currently experiencing high volumes of traffic.

  1. GoFund Me


GoFundMe is an online crowdfunding platform to “raise money for yourself, others and charities.” This tool gives users multiple ways to support hurricane victims: Donate to the Direct Impact Fund, a non-profit that GoFundMe has partnered with to directly support verified hurricane-relief campaigns, or start your own fundraiser and invite your friends and family to join your cause. You can also browse the many active campaigns already underway, just keep an eye out to avoid scams.

As clean-up efforts continue, Ricochet Fuel extends its care and sincere support to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Learn more about Dallas-Fort Worth-based Ricochet Fuel on our website.
