While every United Way across the United States is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we are part of a national network of community-driven organizations. In difficult times, we come together to support our colleagues across the country and around the world.
Across Texas, United Ways are supporting their communities' response and recovery from the recent winter weather disaster. Please see this resource page from United Ways of Texas to learn more about resources for residents, and how you can contribute to local funds.
Texas, the second most populous state in the United States, was battered by winter weather in February that left millions without power and heat, and claimed dozens of lives. According to The Associated Press, "at the peak of the storm, more than 1.4 million residents were without power and 3.5 million were under boil-water notices in Houston’s Harris County, the nation’s third largest county."
