While some of our neighbors are effectively homeless today, some of us feel like we are sitting on our hands.

Here are a few ways to donate to the cause

North Texas Food Bank

Salvation Army

The organization’s disaster trucks are roving the affected North Texas neighborhoods serving meals and drinks. Salvation Army’s three disaster trucks are currently in the ares of Preston Road and Royal Lane and Walnut Hill Road and Marsh Lane, according to Dallas Morning News.
