***UPDATE***Where and How to Help Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

As tragedy continues to strike through Hurricane Harvey, many families from Texas to Louisiana are left without food, shelter and basic necessities.

While so many struggle, the community of San Angelo shines a light as it strives relentlessly to lend a helping hand.
