Here's how you can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey

Many people are wondering how to help the thousands of victims of flooding caused by the storm that used to be Hurricane Harvey.

The Red Cross said volunteers will be needed for sheltering, feeding, damage assessment, logistics, communications, case work and other duties for many months.

From 5 to 10 a.m., we'll again be raising money for the American Red Cross, supporting those affected by the ongoing impact of Tropical Storm Harvey.

"I can't watch it anymore, it breaks my heart", said Red Cross Regional CEO Louise Welch.

The Red Cross doesn't just need people who can commit to deployments to Texas: It needs people who can manage a front desk, guide new volunteers, serve as public affairs officers and fill other positions.

Both groups stress the need for people to sign up and get certified, rather than heading to Houston on their own.

The Red Cross estimated on Tuesday there are more than 17,000 people in Texas seeking refuge in shelters, according to the Associated Press.

Critics claim the organization wasn't transparent about where past disaster relief money went. The organization is also asking for volunteers.

Preliminary estimates indicate that at least 6,000 people sought refuge in dozens of shelters in Texas Sunday night.

"You can do 1,500 meals a day out of this unit", said Maj.

We reached out to the cities of Charleston and North Charleston to find out if they are sending help to Houston.

Crowdfunding site Global Giving is attempting to raise $2 million for funds that will "exclusively support local relief and recovery efforts from this storm".

Finally, as far as companies go, ABInBev's emergency water program has sent more than 155,000 cans of drinking water to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Arlington, Texas, to help the relief efforts.

While numerous Red Cross's services benefit victims across the United States, blood donations primarily stay local.
