11 Fort Worth Companies Helping Hurricane Harvey Victims
By Kayla Roberts
Hurricane Harvey has become a reason for Texans to unite, and 11 local Fort Worth companies have stepped up for their neighbors.
Here are a few companies that are doing their part to help support those impacted, by providing shelter, food and clothing to evacuees — and even the animals.
Note: Remember if you plan to donate supplies, make sure to send them to the appropriate places, as most shelters lack suitable storage to house all donations.
