United Way of Tarrant County announced a collaboration with partner agencies to accept donations to aid in the relief of flooding in Tarrant County.
To date, more than 125 homes in Forest Hill and Everman have been affected from the early October flooding, including 19 homes with major damage and no insurance along with another 67 homes affected without insurance. This number is expected to increase as people realize the true impact of the flooding and the rains continue.
Donations can be made to United Way of Tarrant County’s Emergency Relief Fund at https://unitedwaytarrant.org/donate/ as well as other partner agencies listed below.
One hundred percent of donations will be used to help individuals and families impacted by the flooding. The donations will be allocated to both immediate, basic needs such as food, shelter and medicine, as well as long-term services such as case management, home repairs and other essentials needed to begin the recovery process.
“It is our role to convene and partner with local agencies to provide relief to our neighbors in Tarrant County especially in emergency situations such as flooding,” said TD Smyers, president and CEO of United Way of Tarrant County. “We encourage Tarrant County residents to give through United Way or one of our partner agencies assisting with this effort.”
