Texas Forest Service Steps Up to Deliver Food to Those in Need – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
The storm made it difficult for some agencies to help those in need.
Meals on Wheels Tarrant County provides food to the needy. Often it is the only food they get. Apparently, the severe road conditions made it dangerous for some of the volunteers to make deliveries.
So the Texas Forest Services Department helped deliver this critical food.
The agency is also setting up a resource staging area for a FEMA warehouse.
It will serve as a help page for distribution.
“We’re grateful that the Forest Service has the vehicles and staff to get to these homes safely and to make sure these people have what they need during this time,” said Jordan Lyle of Meals On Wheels Tarrant County.
NBC 5 also confirmed that the Texas Military Department National Guard was also available to assist local authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
