Walgreens is donating food items, first aid and medical equipment including blood pressure cuffs, glucometer strips, catheters and transport wheelchairs to the American Red Cross emergency shelter at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

Lyft donated $100,000 to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and made rider donations to the Red Cross available through the Round Up & Donate feature.

These sessions will be held Monday and Tuesday in Minot and Bismarck.

The American Red Cross says there are more than 17,000 people in Texas seeking refuge in shelters. "We all have to do our part", Bullock said, according to People.

Thousands of people have been forced to leave their flooded homes, losing everything they own - and more rain and flooding is expected throughout the week.

Bullock said that despite the current political divide and turmoil in the country, she hopes that, at the very least, the storm provides an opportunity for Americans to unite. Volunteers at the stadium will be collecting financial donations during the game, which begins at 7:05 p.m.
