5 Organizations That Had Heartwarming Responses To Hurricane Harvey Victims

If there’s anything positive to take away from Hurricane Harvey, it’s the overwhelmingly awesome responses people are having to the disaster.

From neighbors and everyday people, to organizations, and even companies, people are banding together in a beautiful way and it’s incredible to watch.

1. Like this guy who decided to dress up as Spider-Man to put a smile on the faces of children finding refuge in a convention center.

2. Or Annheuser-Busch—the company behind Budweiser—halting production of their beverages to push out canned water to those in need of potable drinking water for Hurricane Harvey.

This is almost standard operating procedure for Annheuser-Busch whenever there’s a flood or disaster.

3. Chili’s is also hard at work sending pre-packaged meals to those displaced by Harvey.

4. The CEO of MyPillow donated 60,000 pillows to Harvey victims to help them get a good night’s rest after all they’ve been through.

 

5. Gallery Furniture transformed two of its enormous stores in Houston into shelters for those who need refuge.

There are also tons of major companies donating money to relief efforts. Verizon, Walgreens, Kroger, HCA Healthcare, Bank of America, AT&T, Coca-Cola, Comcast NBCUniversal, Google, Bayer, Facebook, Dow Chemical Company, Kendra Scott, GoFundMe, Bass Pro Shops, Jefferies, ExxonMobil, Wal-Mart, PepsiCo, Starbucks, Microsoft, Aetna, Allergan, Amazon/Whole Foods Market, Caterpillar, Cheniere Energy, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Western Union, Apple, JPMorgan Chase, Target, UPS, ABInBev—just to name a few—their donations combined have resulted in a whopping $113 million and counting in relief funds for Hurricane Harvey victims.
