How to Help Those Affected by Hurricanes Harvey & Irma

Monday, September 11, 2017   (0 Comments)

The IMA membership extends to many locations, including the areas in Texas and Florida which are being affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We have received a number of emails with updates from our members in those areas, thankfully the updates we have received indicate that these members are safe. 

Associations often come to the aid of communities in need, and this is no different. Yearly, IMA picks a philanthropy initiative for communities in need. Your help with Give Kids The World has been a huge success. Given the dire circumstances that will continue for some time, we ask you extend your advocacy for assisting those in need to those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Here are some options to consider:

  • The Red Cross is asking people to donate money on its website or to text 90999 to donate $10. The group is also asking for volunteers.
  • Other organizations that are engaged in relief efforts include the Salvation Army, Samaritan’s Purse, and Heart to Heart International.
  • The crowdfunding site GlobalGiving is also working to raise $2 million to provide emergency supplies like food, water and medicine to survivors of the storm in addition to longer-term recovery efforts. By Aug. 29, they had raised nearly $1.3 million for Hurricane Harvey.
  • Individuals and corporations can also donate to relief efforts through National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, an association of organizations that seek to mitigate and alleviate the impact of disasters.
