Amidst the flooding, displacement, and disaster caused by Hurricane Harvey, we want to direct our community towards resources and organizations that can help provide disaster relief.
The fastest and easiest way to assist families of this disaster and North Texas sheltering efforts is through a financial donation to your charity of choice; some options include:
- American Red Cross (www.redcross.org),
- Salvation Army (www.helpsalvationarmy.org),
- North Texas Food Bank (www.ntfb.org)
Our friends at Bumps N’ Bruises are collecting pediatric specific (age 18 and under) donation items.
- Wet wipes
- Feminine hygiene products
- Under garments
- Small toys (dolls, stuffed bears, small blankets)
- Children’s books.
New items from the store and used items are certainly welcome. Take a moment to look around your home or closets for any unopened cans of formula you may have, diapers your children have outgrown, clothes that no longer fit or the like.
Bumps N’ Bruises is open noon-9PM daily and located at 2251 Matlock Road, Mansfield Texas. They will bundle and transport the donated items to area shelters and collection centers.
Anyone traveling to DFW from the Southern Texas Coast needing information on shelters, please call 211.
