As Winter Storms Plague Southern States, GreaterGood Is Helping Where It’s Needed Most

In the wake of the winter storms in the south, you and other generous donors have helped GreaterGood raise more than $367,000 (and counting) to help the people and animals affected by these frigid conditions.

In mid-February, 2021, days of brutal winter storms plagued Texas and other southern states. The freezing temperatures, coupled with a buildup of snow and ice, disabled the power grid and caused burst pipes and downed power lines, leaving millions without electricity, heat, and water.

In Texas, more than 3 million individuals and businesses have gone days without power, and more than 14.4 million residents—half the state’s population—have at some point lacked access to safe and potable water due to frozen or burst pipes and disruptions in the water service.

Leaks are resulting in property damage, and people and animals are literally freezing in their own homes. Store shelves have been emptied of water and many of the items people and animals need to survive. Animal shelters and wildlife rehabilitation centers are struggling to keep thousands of injured and homeless animals alive while they wait for the power to come back on.

GreaterGood Charities is working hard to respond quickly where it is needed most. Your generous donations have helped us fund our disaster response efforts to help people, pets, and wildlife in the areas most affected by these winter storms. Already, more than $367,000 has been raised, several emergency grants have been distributed, and more requests are being reviewed with the aim of offering additional support in the coming days.
