How to Help Texas Right Now (And Useful Resources For Those in Need)

For those looking to help from afar or in Texas...

Last week, 73% of the country was covered in snow during massive winter storms caused by climate change. They devastated parts of the country unprepared for severe weather and, in Texas, power outages have created apocalyptic scenarios and incredibly dangerous conditions. For those looking to help, either from afar or on the ground, we've rounded up organizations you can donate to or even volunteer with in Texas. To all of our Texas readers: Stay safe and warm out there! We're thinking of you.

To help the houseless:

Food banks: 

General and Mutual Aid:


  • SARA Animal Sanctuary is in need of donations for hay
