HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner announced late Sunday that he and the Greater Houston Community Foundation have established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and is accepting tax deductible donations. 

 

“We are getting calls from across the country and right here in our hometown, and the generosity of people who understand this disaster is truly amazing,” said Mayor Turner in a statement. “Together we can make a difference to those who will need extensive help to get back on their feet once this storm is over.”
