Those wishing to donate items such as toiletries and nonperishable food to people impacted by Hurricane Harvey will be able to do so at several sites around Boston on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Mayor Marty Walsh announced the “Help for Houston” drive on Monday, while the remnants of the Category 4 storm continued to loose historic rainfall and floods on much of eastern Texas.

The items most in need include diapers, baby formula, nonperishable food, toiletries, and new clothes and blankets.

Dropoff sites include City Hall, the Bolling Building in Roxbury, and 1010 Massachusetts Avenue in Dorchester. All locations of Boston Centers for Youth & Families are dropoff points, too, including its headquarters at 1483 Tremont Street in Mission Hill.

Also, the City of Houston has set up a site for those wishing to make tax-deductible donations to the relief effort.

If you know of any other relief/charity efforts for those affected by Harvey, let us know.
