Military Spouses Rallying For Harvey Relief



When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last week, it was forecast to be a long lasting storm, but it became more and more evident just how bad it was when it lingered in southeast Texas for days, dropping 50 inches of rain in some areas.

People from across the country started to come to assist the residents and our military community was right there with them.

Team Rubicon sent veterans in to help with rescue efforts. Military spouses started donation drives on their posts. And milspouse entrepreneurs started to fundraise.

We’ve rounded up fundraisers happening right now to support the region as they continue to recover from the storm. If you’re looking for a way to donate, consider these fundraisers which are all giving back to various charities:
