People Helping People After North Texas Winter Storms – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
The winter weather in North Texas has injured so many people, but there are so many others who stand up to help.
Lily Kramlich-Taylor, co-founder of local information site Dallasites101, posted information on her social media about where to get supplies and help. In these posts, she shared the many things people do so that others can help.
People like Steph Grant, who worked with her nonprofit Promot Love Movement to distribute clothes, blankets and even hot meals to people in south Dallas with no electricity or water. They even worked with the black women-run organization Say It With Your Chest to do laundry for people displaced at Camp Rhonda. They will continue this effort into the week of February 22nd.
Kendra Eaton of the online brand Sprinkled with Pink Shop raised $ 11,000 in just 36 hours for her “Texas Strong” products. She donated 100% of the profits to the Genesis Women’s Shelter, which was damaged by the storm.
Airric Heidelberg of Invasion Restaurant on Crutcher Street in Dallas donated hundreds of meals to those in need and to Human Impact Project volunteers.
Then came help from outside the state. A good truck from Cedar Rapids, Iowa headed for North Texas to cook grill meals for people in need of a hot meal. They even distributed free water. Willie Ray’s food truck will head to Houston on Tuesday to distribute groceries.
