DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — With Tropical Storm Harvey still impacting parts of Texas and the gulf, the American Red Cross and Salvation Army have already stepped in.

Captain Chris Bryant of the Salvation Army in Dothan is on stand-by to be sent to Texas.

"We are in the beginning stages of what has yet to settle down."

He says, the Salvation Army has already sent over 50 mobile feeding units to help, more are expected.

"We got them coming in from everywhere."

Ken Rice with the Wiregrass American Red Cross says a team was sent Monday morning.

He says, "It’s a wonderful thing that they do, and it is very gratifying when you help."

Right now, both say the best way to pitch in is monetary donations.

You can text “Harvey” to 90999 to make a $10 donation to the Red Cross.

Rice says that’s the easiest way to help.

The Salvation Army is taking donations but will also take supplies.

You can text “Storm” to 51555 or call them at 334-671-8211.

They say they need things like clothes, diapers, medical supplies and food.

Bryant says, "Here in the Wiregrass we are comfortable in our houses but in Houston and other areas throughout Texas, they are not."

Items can be dropped off at the office on South Bell Street in Dothan.
