United Way created the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund to support local communities in Texas, Louisiana and the surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. United Way created the United Way Irma Recovery Fund to support local communities in the Southeast United States and Caribbean affected by Hurricane Irma.

As part of our mission to build stronger communities, and to fight for every person in every community, United Ways in the affected areas will continue to raise money locally and respond to emerging needs as appropriate for their community. United Way’s Harvey and Irma Recovery funds will complement those efforts, help smaller United Ways who may not have the capacity to create their own fund, and provide a single clearinghouse for individual and corporate donors who want to impact affected areas.

Anyone in the country can now text "Irma" to 898-211 to get answers to storm-related questions including help finding a local shelter, updates on mandatory evacuations, and preparedness tips. This effort is being staffed by over 100 2-1-1 specialists from centers around the country who volunteered to assist. So far, over 100 people have been helped through the text platform for Irma in communities throughout the Southeast.
