There is a current need for water. Many water systems across the state are experiencing boil water conditions because of the number of water mains that have burst, allowing contaminants to enter the system and making water unsafe for drinking. Any Texas Food Bank would appreciate contributions to help them with water distribution efforts.
After disasters like crippling storms, there is often an increase in fraudulent activity. If you suspect an organization or person may be committing fraud, you can report it to National Center for Disaster Fraud.
