Donate blood at weareblood.org (formerly called The Blood Center of Central Texas).
It’s quick, it doesn’t cost you anything but a few minutes of your time and the blood bank serves all of Central Texas not just the Austin area.

Monetary donations are encouraged to be sent to Week of Compassion and marked for Hurricane Harvey.
Donations may be made online at weekofcompassion.org.
CCC will be collecting these items and distributing them as received.
