How to help people affected by the Texas winter storm, power outage

With ongoing water shortages, hundreds of thousands still lacking power and a $50 billion economic impact now being estimated statewide, storm-ravaged Texas still needs our help — even if all you can do from afar is donate a few dollars from the comfort of your desktop.

Here are some groups seeking cash and other support.


GoFundMe on Friday launched a centralized scroll of verified fundraisers from throughout Texas, ranging from pitches for regional efforts to those on behalf of individual families in need.

GoFundMe pitches include a new effort on behalf of the family of Cristian Peneda, an 11 year-old boy found dead in his bed on Monday.

The American Red Cross is spearheading disaster relief efforts throughout Texas, and has a page that lets donors direct their cash by region and even find a Texas blood drive site.

The Salvation Army also allows donations to be pinpointed to a specific city or state.
