Cleaning up the devastation of Hurricane Harvey is no small feat. If you're interested in helping, there are a number of ways to do so. You can donate to organizations like Samaritan's Purse or the Salvation Army, or to specific local charities like the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, the Houston SPCA, and the Houston Food Bank. If you'd rather give supplies, many of these organizations have Amazon wish lists that let you donate critical items to those in need.

But there's another way to help you may not be aware of — shopping! You can support companies that are donating funds, as well as those that are matching donations. Below, we've rounded up lots of retailers that are giving a portion of their proceeds to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
