CONTENT closed August 28th - September 4th

Due to the historic and catastrophic effects of Hurricane Harvey on Houston, CONTENT will be closed for the remainder of the week. We plan to reopen next Tuesday, September 5th.

The citizens of Houston and nearby towns have shown amazing resilience in the face of catastrophic flooding from Hurricane Harvey. In the coming days, the floods will end and waters will recede, but Houston faces a long road to recovery. Here are a few ways you can support our great city:  

Mayor Sylvester Turner established this fund through the Greater Houston Community Foundation to provide tax-deductible flood relief donations for those affected by the historic flooding. 
America’s largest food bank is prepared to mobilize resources across Houston, asking for volunteers, donations, and monetary contributions. Their donation page reminds that every $1 donated provides 3 meals.
If you need a place to stay or have extra space or property that you could make available for a temporary housing solution - AirBnB has created a great, simple platform for this. Houston properties are needed as we try to pull folks out of shelters and into better living conditions. 
The Red Cross is managing many of our shelters for immediate relief and support of victims. You can donate online or text REDCROSS to 90999 to contribute $10 to disaster relief.
Our blood banks are in critical need. If you're in Texas, check for local blood drives in your area.
