Shopping and Drinking to Help Harvey Victims

Texas Businesses Break Out Hurricane Specials

BY // 09.01.17

Hundreds of Dallas businesses have stepped up to show their support for victims of Hurricane Harvey, and some are getting extra creative. Of course, the most effective way to help relief efforts is to donate money and supplies to trusted aid organizations, and to volunteer, but there are countless other ways to chip in and make a difference, no matter how small.

Go shopping, get a haircut, pour a glass of wine – all while giving back to Texans in need. Here are some businesses to hit up ASAP.

— Wear your Lone Star State pride while helping out fellow Texans. Austin-based menswear retailer STAG Provisions is donating 100 percent of proceeds from its “Houston” and “Texas” T-shirts to hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

— Dallas-based luxury watch and leather goods company Jack Mason is donating 50 percent of all online sales through September 4 to relief efforts. If you’ve been eyeing one of their menswear-chic aviation watches, now is the time to order.

— Texas-founded resort and lifestyle brand Devereux will donate 30 percent of all sales to United Way of Greater Houston’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts for the next week.

— Can drinking wine help relief efforts? If you’re drinking out of Lushra’s “Texas Forever” wine glass, the answer is yes. The brand is donating 50 percent of proceeds from the cute glass towards flood relief efforts.

— STAG isn’t the only brand making T-shirts to raise money for relief efforts. North Texas brand Bullzerk partnered with WFAA 8 to create a special “Texas Care” T-shirt, with 100 percent of proceeds benefitting relief efforts.

— Houston-based jewelry designer Golden Thread is using 100% of proceeds from its Antique Large Texas necklace and Antique Large Heart necklace to help victims of the flood. The brand is personally collecting and delivering necessary supplies to people in need.

— New Highland Park Village boutique Veronica Beard is donating 10 percent of every in-store purchase to Harvey relief efforts.

— One of Dallas’ best hair salons is having a one-day event to help out relief efforts. Dear Clark salon is having a Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser on Sunday, September 10 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Stop by for a cut, color, or style and 100 percent of proceeds will be donated to victims of the disaster.

— Some Dallas organizations are taking another approach to Harvey relief efforts by trying to brighten the spirits of evacuees. Institutions including the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science are offering free admission to those displaced by the storm. The program at the Nasher will run as long as Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center remains open as a evacuee site.

AT&T Performing Arts Center is also inviting evacuees staying in city-run shelters to enjoy two shows at the venue. The center will provide free tickets and parking to Thursday night’s presentation of MOMIX, an exciting and family-friendly dance performance at the Winspear Opera House. The center is also offering free tickets to Saturday evening’s concert with rock band Colt & the Old 45s in the Wyly Theatre.

Home, chic home.
