How you can help Texas tornado victims

There are several ways that you can help out people affected by yesterday's tornados across North Texas.

The easiest, and most effective, is to give money to the Red Cross of North Texas. This money helps pay for rent or hotel rooms, new clothes, food and more for families who have lost everything.

You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, or visit to donate more money online.


The Volunteer Center of North Texas organizes groups to help where there is the most need. Visit to sign up and learn more.
