The Black Professional is packing up next Thursday and heading to Houston to bring donated items to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. With two of our founders calling the city their first home, it was a simple decision, especially as we remember our first days in our new home as college freshman twelve years ago.

Please consider donating items, money or purchasing items straight from our Amazon wish list today, Hurricane Harvey Wish List

You can also drop items at:
Drive Sports Performance (Gentilly Area)
3233 St. Bernard Ave. NOLA 70119
M&W 5-7pm
T&Th 5:30am-8:30am
T& Th 5-7pm

Fascio Hair Salon (CBD Area)
526 Gravier St. NOLA 70130
Th-Sun 12-7pm

Next week’s items will go to Transformation Faith Christian Church.


We’ve all seen what can happen when donations don’t make it to those who need it the most. This is why we are personally delivering our items to Houston, Tx. Taking it a step further we would like to help at least one family while we are on the ground.

Jazymn, a Houston native, and her five-year-old twins have lost everything but luckily made it out from their neighborhood safely. We hope you’ll help us take care of them by donating gently used or new items, household items, toys, etc.
