From the American Red Cross:

People affected by severe weather and other disasters need help now. You can help people affected by disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or other crises by making a gift to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small. You can donate by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Your donation helps provide food, shelter and emotional support to those affected by disasters.

“Our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by Sunday’s severe storms,” Trevor Riggen, vice president of disaster operations and logistics for the Red Cross, said in a statement. “Red Cross workers are on the ground now providing relief and we’ll be there for weeks to come helping people pick up the pieces and get back on their feet.”
