HARP-CurrentHelping Appalachian Rural People

The HARP Mission is an Ohio 501 (c) (3) Not For Profit organized to assist in disaster relief efforts. It is an established mission that helps displaced disaster victims re-establish themselves in safe and sanitary temporary housing. Help is provided, with your donations, to furnish their restored homes with major household items (furniture, appliances, kitchen, bedroom, family room and bath furnishings, etc.).

HARP specializes in procuring and distributing donations of furniture, appliances and household items for victims of natural and man-made disasters as they move into temporary housing and then back to their restored homes.

Donations of financial support, flood buckets and hygiene items can be sent to:
