Many non-profits in the Google Grants program are taking part in the flood relief efforts in the Central U.S.
We'd like to call attention to these organizations here so that you can get involved, provide support, and learn more about the floods which have caused 24 counties in Iowa to be declared federal disaster areas (at the time of this posting).
- American Red Cross is currently providing shelter and food until the waters recede and recovery can begin. They are urging affected residents to register with their Safe and Well website so that loved ones can search for them and know their status. Details of the relief efforts can be seen here on their interactive map. Read more or donate to help.
- America's Second Harvest is providing food and resources to those affected by the floods. They expect relief efforts to top $150K. Donate to help.
