Walmart promises to donate up to $20 million in Harvey relief efforts

PLS employees and customers can donate to the American Red Cross through the company's GoFundMe page titled "PLS Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund". The Red Cross knows how much people in Texas can us donations and help from volunteers.

You can learn more about where your donations are going in this video message from Gail McGovern. Former President Barack Obama was among those to urge people to donate to the Red Cross. Americans work hard for their money, and we're committed to being the very best stewards of our donor's dollars. Donors can designate their donation to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts by choosing that option when donating on redcross.org or on 1- 800- RED CROSS.

And as the two Harvey-devastated states move from rescue to relief and recovery mode, the nation will be watching whether charities and the federal government will fulfill their promises.

The Red Cross also reportedly mismanaged efforts in Haiti after the 2010 quake devastated the already struggling island.

The Red Cross has mobilized thousands of trained Red Cross disaster relief workers, truckloads of kitchen supplies, as well as tens of thousands of ready-to-eat meals to support this response effort.

Along with Red Cross partners, they have served more than 250,000 meals and snacks since the storm began.

Donations pay for the gas and equipment to power our feeding efforts.

More than half of the Red Cross emergency response fleet - 200 emergency response vehicles - have been activated for the operation.

Donations pay to support the mental health and health services professionals who support and care for evacuees - some 8,000 contacts have already been made. You can also make a donation to your local Salvation Army unit, and note "Hurricane" on the memo line of your check.

When disaster strikes, the American Red Cross answers.

The courses are free, and the Red Cross encourages people to register before attending. The foundation said they have enough clothing to provide to the victims.

Although they will accept supplies, the Red Cross has been notified to refer people wanting to donate items to call United Way by dialing 211.
