The City of Austin and Travis County is asking the community for help to manage donations.

The shelter at the Met Center does not have the capacity or staff to manage on-site donations and is not accepting donations at the shelter.

People interested in supporting hurricane survivors are encouraged to make monetary donations to established, reputable organizations assisting in relief and recovery efforts. Clothing, personal items, and other needs are being met through the shelter management process.
