Donated 500.00 to hurricane Harvey I didn’t receive a statement for my taxes my confirmation number is
WG01157734 please let me know how to get one


Will any of the funds be going to CLIMATE CHANGE RESEARCH!
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!


I agree…I tried the number on the screen to get info where I could donate at the first of the month of October..there has been nothing and the phone number on the TV screen was simply a Verizon number..I agree with anonymous.. Missing out on money from those struggling financially but willing to give what we can spare..even if it’s 2 dollars..I wish it had been easier to give.

I have Boost Mobile and it is hard for me to get through because it goes to Verizon and I do not have an account with Verizon


Who is administering the distribution of the contributions across all of the agencies and can I choose where I would like my donation to go? I would support Habitat for Humanity and the United Way, but I don’t know anything about the Texas organizations. Thanks – Oh and I would like to know what is going to Florida for Irma relief.


1-800-258-6000 is NOT the correct number. We are currently trying to contact who is in charge but as on now I ask you not to call the number listed above. Thank you and sorry for inconveniences.


I am employed with Ute Mountain Casino in Colorado and we received A LOT of calls from people trying to donate as well. We had to tell them it was the wrong number they were calling. Not sure what was going one but I’m glad you got through. :)

Tried by phone and was to,d to hang up and try again after checking the number. The web site keeps telling us that our email address is incorrect so our donation is not accepted.

I wonder how many other people are having the same problem.

We have already donated to the Red Cross but want to donate to Hand and Hand.c


Getting verizon service ctr on phone when i call..CONTINUE D over and over mostly busy but when got through its verizon

Howard and Cynthia

Would love to give but the web site will not accept my information. Tried the phone and was told to hang up and look up the phone number. The telephone providers and web site need to be brought up to speed.

My son being a first responder for the fire department and was on lock down from Friday to Tuesday morning while hurricane Irma came thru central Florida, and had damage to his roof and leaked onto his floor and damaged it as well, while he was saving other people doing his job he suffered a loss to his house and now has to figure a way to fix it. How can he get some help?


I don’t have a credit card nor do on line banking
Is there a mailing address to send a check to?
I think you’re missing out on a lot of donations by not providing this info!
