In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, many people are displaced and Houston faces a long road ahead filled with cleanup and rebuilding. Some waterparks are doing their part to contribute to relief efforts.
Typhoon Texas in Katy, Texas is donating a portion of the proceeds from its 2017 Souvenir Cups to hurricane relief. Customers can order cups online through the waterpark’s website and have them shipped or opt for pickup.
NRH²O Family Water Park, in North Richland Hills, Texas, gave guests a discounted admission rate over Labor Day Weekend when they brought one of several listed hygiene items to donate. The waterpark allowed guests who came with donations to pay its Under 48-inch admission instead of adult admission.
Splashway Waterpark and Campgrounds in Sheridan, Texas also opened its doors on Labor Day Weekend to raise money for Harvey relief. The waterpark donated all admission proceeds from the holiday weekend. According to a local ABC News report, Splashway is also housing evacuees in its campgrounds and cabins.
The Walt Disney Company announced it, in conjunction with ABC television station KTRK-TV in Houston, will donate $1 million to the American Red Cross. The Walt Disney Company Foundation will also match Disney employee donations to Red Cross and other qualified organizations helping with Harvey relief.
