I created a simple webpage which aggregates a lot of different hurricane resources. Here is the link and hopefully it will be informative. Thanks!

Good list. I will add that there are a number of unofficial shelters not on that list if you happen to be looking for someone.

The quickest way to find the nearest Hurricane Harvey shelter that isn’t already full:
http://poprox.maps.arcgis.com/apps/M...982ef80fea649b
Hover over a green dot for exact location and more info.

If the map provides more info than you need right now, there’s an easier way to find the closest shelter to you that’s still accepting newcomers:
Just text your Zip Code (the one where you are; it doesn’t have to be your home address) to 346-214-0739. It’s set up to text you back the location of the nearest open hurricane shelter.

Is there a way for someone living in the Northeast to donate good clothing to people? I don't have money, but I have a lot of clothing items that I can no longer wear and so does my son. Dockers, button down shirts, lightweight jackets, etc.

Do you know of any nationwide organization willing to take the items and get them to those in need in Texas?

It is very nice of you to want to help

You might contact your Salvation Army location and see if they are sending people from their area
They might be willing to take a box or call some area churches --maybe an area church is sending volunteers

Have heard on FB and CD that clothing is not that needed now and then read different post when some church/charity is looking for clothing

I have friend in Houston teaching at school w/lot of low-income families who likely sustained flooding damage and school was looking for donations of anything to give families
Her church was also taking clothing donations
Mailing is expensive though...
