The thawing from the winter storm may have begun in Dallas, but many Texans are now dealing with damage to their homes or are still in need of clean water and food. Yesterday, we focused on how you can help local women’s shelters, but the work to help those in the city is vast. We’ve rounded up a few more ways to donate your time, skills, and money to support locals in need.
We will continue to update as we discover more opportunities to help the city recover.
Volunteer Your Time and Skills
Community Beer Co.’s charitable arm “The Greater Good” is looking for volunteers right now to help locals who have suffered water damage and damage to their homes during the winter storm. Specific areas of need include water damage removal, plumbing repair, drywall replacement, delivery supplies, and more. Email GreaterGood@CommunityBeer.com and include your name, phone number, skills, and availability over the next few weeks if you can help.
