It Takes a Village is dedicated to bringing our community ways to give back and to truly ‘Be the Village’ to those in need. Right now Texas needs our help. The devastation from Hurricane Harvey is still ongoing as the storm dumps over 50+ inches of rain on the area. It can be very hard to know how to help in times like these…it’s far away, you’re not sure who to trust, you’re not sure what they need…we get it. So we here at the Village have curated a list of ‘grassroots giving’ options to make it easier for you to work your magic and give of whatever resources you have to assist our fellow neighbors in Texas.
