Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas: Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

The City of Dallas received a formal request from the State of Texas to temporarily house Gulf Coast residents at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Our Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts will not affect events or shows currently booked. All planned events will occur as scheduled. If you have specific questions about your event, please contact your Event Coordinator.

If you were displaced and need immediate assistance, please call 211 or visit DisasterAssistance.gov

HOW TO HELP?
We realize many of you want to join us in the effort of helping our displaced friends; however, we are not accepting volunteers without proper agency approval. Thank you for your cooperation.

VOLUNTEER
To volunteer register online.
The online volunteer process is being done managed by Voly.org. First you must create an account & submit an online application.  You will be notified by email once your application is received.  A background check is required, so please request for a background check, once your online application has been submitted. Once the background check is approved, you will be able to sign up for Hurricane Harvey Opportunities on their website as they become available.

American Red Cross
American Red Cross also is accepting volunteers. Register online now.
It takes at least 24 hours for your background check and then you will be notified how you can help.

*** Please do not come to the Convention Center, as we are not allowed to accept volunteers without proper agency approval. ***
