Helping After Harvey: 'Today's' Jeff Rossen treks across country

HOUSTON – As Hurricane Harvey floodwaters recedes after devastating Texas, "Today" is looking for your help in bringing relief to victims of the storm.

"Today" investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen criss-crossed the country with the United Way to collect donations to deliver to the people of Houston.

Rossen kicked off "Todays" "Helping After Harvey" initiative on Sept. 5 at the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas

People brought nonperishable food, bottled water, toilet paper, paper towels, bleach, mops, trash bags, school supplies, and more to the United Way location. Rossen even went door-to-door collecting items.

18-wheelers stuffed with supplies arrived in Houston early Thursday morning.

For those who want to help but are not sure how, there is a way to help from home.  You can text "HARVEY" to 90999 to donate to the Red Cross to help families, or you can head to RedCross.Org. If you want to support pets, HoustonSPCA.org is a good site to visit.

To give to the United Way of Greater Houston Relief Fund, visit UnitedWayHouston.org/flood or text "UWFLOOD" to 41444.

For those looking to provide people with a warm meal, HoustonFoodBank.Org is accepting money donations and also looking for volunteers to serve.

Anyone searching for a list of major charities and ratings for each one, CharityNavigator.org has it all in one place.
