Central Texas residents can now donate to Hurricane Harvey relief funds by ride-sharing, a news release from Lyft said.

The ride-share business said customers around the world can round up the fare of their Lyft trip between now and the end of September and donate the difference to the American Red Cross.

For residents not interested in ride-sharing, the business will host supply drives in Austin and San Antonio.

The San Antonio supply drive is Aug. 30 at Tomatillo’s Cafe y Cantina, located at 3210 Broadway St., San Antonio, at 5 p.m.

The Austin supply drive will take place at EastSide Tavern, located at 1510 E Cesar Chavez St., Austin, Aug. 31 at 5 p.m.

Lyft said it’s specifically looking for non-perishable food items, baby diapers, new clothes and baby bottles.

The company also announced it will donate $100,000 to the Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey relief fund.

Additionally, Lyft has suspended operations in Houston, Corpus Christi, Victoria, Beaumont and Lake Charles, Louisiana.
