The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund is a relief fund for those affected by the Hurricane Harvey. The Relief Fund was started by the mayor in Houston, Sylvester Turner and County Judge Ed Emmett, after they received an overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and companies who wanted to help after the storm. The Relief Fund will contribute to finance help services and organizations in the area. Read more about the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund here.
