The Disaster Relief program supplies those affected by natural disasters in Texas with diapers—the only organization in Texas specifically providing victims diapers. TXDB collaborates with partner agencies who coordinate and provide relief services to communities affected by natural disasters.
100% of every donation will go to disaster relief efforts along the Texas coast. Diapers and other items will be distributed to shelters in the affected areas over the course the next several weeks. Donations will continue to go towards post-recovery efforts to families that have been displaced long-term.
Girls and women in the Houston area are in need of new/gently used bras and feminine hygiene products. ISTG has affiliates in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio – cities which are receiving tens of thousands of evacuees. Our teams there are dropping off products at the temp city shelters. Some of our affiliates have teamed up with orgs driving into Houston from Austin to bring items to the convention centers there.
Support the Girls collects and distributes donations of new/used bras and new sealed packages of tampons and maxi pads to homeless women and girls across North America (and in 4 locations worldwide).
The Disaster Recovery Assistance is a collaborative effort between the Foundation and GHBC with local, state, and federal partners to provide recovery assistance to African American businesses within the Greater Houston Region impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Assistance includes help with access to capital needed to support immediate cleanup costs and longer-term recovery from physical damage and economic losses as well as developing long-term recovery strategies.
Over the past 38 years, the Foundation has annually given a total of $50,000 dollars toward advancing, educating, equipping, and empowering other minority business entrepreneurs, professionals, and students. Here at the Foundation, we feel that this work of charity is both relevant and necessary to meet the growing needs of our community. We are focused on assisting mature and young minority entrepreneurs to create and facilitate growth for their businesses.
