The needs in Texas are growing – you can help.
Last week’s winter storm dealt a terrible blow to Texas as thousands of homes lost power as large swaths of the state’s grid went down. Texans running low on food are finding empty grocery store shelves. Food pantries are running out of supplies. And the freeze has wiped out substantial portions of the state’s citrus and vegetable crops. Millions of residents remain under a boil-water advisory. Scores of people have been injured or have died due to the storm with numbers sadly expected to rise during recovery efforts.
Already hit hard by death and unemployment due to COVID-19, Black and Hispanic communities have suffered greatly from the winter storms. They tend to live in neighborhoods with older homes, more vulnerable pipes and fewer food options. All of this has made it harder to withstand the cold temperatures and power outages.
The need is immense and the network of responses is vast. Impact Cubed has vetted the organizations below and is making donations to support their efforts.
