TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Relief organizations and private citizens are deploying from all over the country to provide relief after Hurricane Harvey, but you don't have to be a volunteer to help out.

KOLD held a phone bank Monday Aug. 28, 2017 to help our local Red Cross Southern Arizona Chapter raise money for relief efforts in south Texas. More than $22,000 was raised to help Texas residents get back on their feet.

You can always donate online at www.redcross.org, or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. You can also text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Other groups you can donate to include:

Support Texas T-Shirts

Aladdin Graphics on Tucson's west side is printing the T-shirts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
