World Renew is an ECO partner and disaster assistance organization that mobilized in the Houston area before Hurricane Harvey even hit. You can stay informed by signing up for email updates or visiting their website WorldRenew.net to read about their ongoing efforts for Hurricane Harvey, or scanning their volunteer page, which lists numerous on-the-ground service opportunities for people who desire to help victims of the storm.
You may also send funds to The Presbytery of Texas. With so many of our Texas churches affected by the storm, and with direct contact to those churches and communities, the presbytery is in the best position to administer those funds to people in need.
Checks can be made out to:
ECO: Presbytery of Texas
c/o Highland Park Presbyterian Church
Attn. Mark Story, Moderator
3821 University Blvd. Dallas, Texas 75205.

We are hearing stories of our ECO churches serving as shelters and deeply caring for the communities in which they serve. Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church is one such example. They are set up to be a Red Cross shelter, but when the Red Cross staff couldn't make it in, the good folks of MDPC stepped up and filled in the gaps. Several of these churches have their own funds set up to receive donations as well. Here is a listing if you prefer to use technology to expedite sending relief funding:
Memorial Drive in Houston
Grace Presbyterian Houston
First Presbyterian Church Houston
Windwood Presbyterian Church
Highland Park in Dallas
Thank you for your continued prayers and support!
