It's been a week since San Jose was hit by a severe storm that left several areas of the city flooded and thousands in need of help.

There have been several efforts to bring the greater community together to volunteer, donate goods and funds but the work is not done.

We've put together a list of ways to help below and if we are missing any, please email VP of Communications Mayra Flores De Marcotte here.


The City of San Jose has also set up this page for upcoming volunteer opportunities, including creek/area cleanups.


On March 5, between noon and 9PM, downtown San Jose restaurants are participating in a Dine & Give campaign to donate 25% of the bill to the San Jose flood relief fund. Participating SVO members include: Blush Ice BarThe Farmers Union and Olla CocinaClick here for details.

The Silicon Valley Community Foundation has raised $998,000 as of Feb. 28. To make a donation to help families affected, click here.

SVO members San Jose Earthquakes have also set up a donation page, which they have said will match the first $10,000. Click here to donate.

SVO members CityTeam have also set up ways for you to help. Click here for details.


For those impacted by the floods, the City of San Jose has put together these resources for your use.
