Donations of goods and non-perishable items are helpful, but financial donations are needed as well. Always research the organization when you are making a donation. One organization Fort Bend County has partnered with is United Way. By giving to United Way, you are aiding in short and long-term recovery efforts within Fort Bend County.
The local economy is like a chain: when a disaster occurs, the chain is temporarily broken. A donation to the United Way Fort Bend County fund helps repair the broken links of the chain in the short-term, allowing the chain of the local economy to re-establish and strengthen itself over the long-term.
