Dear JM Community, 
 
I wanted to send on some information about donating towards the relief in Houston. I lived in Houston after I graduated from college and worked for a crisis hotline. A friend of mine worked for a great organization called Covenant House Houston (https://www.covenanthouse.org/) which is a shelter for young people. She reached out to them this week and they offered the following needs, as well as the need for direct donations to their organization. 
 
Our most pressing needs are:
- socks, all sizes (male, female)
- tshirts, all sizes (male, female, unisex)
- underwear, all sizes (male, female)
 
Please see their website for more specific donation information. Or, if you want to buy the above items and pass to me to send as a group, that would be great. 
 
I know there are a lot of needs in Houston, and many different organizations doing necessary and important work. I wanted to offer this as one option, if you were overwhelmed (as I have been) as to how to start, where to give, etc. 
 
Take good care,
