People from across the country are sending money, dropping off donations and looking for other ways to help with the Harvey relief effort in Texas and Louisiana.

Rainfall there has reached record levels, flood waters are breaching levees and at least 15 people, including a member of law enforcement, have died. Thousands have been rescued, but thousands more are still trapped by floodwaters, which experts now say could take weeks to recede.

In Boston,  Mayor Marty Walsh has established a “Help for Houston” donation drive where the city is encouraging people to bring non-perishable food items, clothing, blankets, diapers, baby formula, and toiletries. The items are scheduled to be delivered Friday.

According to the Boston Globe,  other organizations assisting in relief efforts include The American Red Cross, AmeriCares, The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities USA, Feeding Texas, and Samaritan's Purse.
