When something as devastating as Hurricane Harvey hits land and it affects so many people it touches us all. The after effects of this storm are going to be felt for a very long time and as Girl Scouts we are all taught to be friendly and helpful, care for others, make the world a better place, and step up and help where you can.
Since the storm began we have been seeing piles of post and articles out there of how you can help. I thought I gather as many as I can and put it in this post with links so your troop can decide how you want to volunteer and make a impact in someones life.
