UPDATE, Aug. 29: 

– There are now at least 10,000 evacuees at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. Officials are moving some of those people to the Toyota Center. The Red Cross is also coordinating volunteers.

At the GRB, volunteers say they are in need of bedding, towels, wheelchairs, walkers, and toiletries. The only clothing needed is plus size clothing.

– An unofficial community outreach form has been set up to connect smaller shelter and support efforts to volunteers and those willing to donate time or supplies.

Anyone who represents a shelter, business or location that needs support, a volunteer and supplies request form has been created to mobilize local efforts to go directly to facilities in need.

The link to the form can be found here:
