Unprecedented winter storms have left millions without power in Texas, with little information on when power grids will become operational.
Here are some options to help:
OPTION 1 - WARM HOUSING: In Austin, the area Urban League has started a campaign to raise funds for hotel rooms, food, water and other basics.
OPTION 2 - FOOD + BLANKETS: Local organization Free Lunch is making deliveries of food, blankets, and warmers.
OPTION 3 - AMAZON WISH LISTS
Several organizations have setup lists of items that are in great need.

Help for black communities in need: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/genericItemsPage/29SWX62XDKBLG?ref_=wl_share
OPTION 4 - ANIMALS: Austin Pets Alive! is working to keep pets across Texas warm and safe. They are in need of styrofoam containers, dog beds, heat lamps, and monetary donations.
We’ll update this list as more options become available.
