As Dallas Thaws From The Winter Storm, These Are Ways You Can Volunteer and Give Back Right Now
The winter storm may have started thawing in Dallas, but many Texans are now struggling with damage to their homes or still in need of clean water and food. Yesterday we focused on how you can help the local women’s shelters, but the work to help the people of the city is great. We’ve rounded up a few more ways you can donate your time, skills, and money to help support locals in need.
We’ll keep updating as we discover more ways to help the city recover.
