So many cities have lifted boil water notices, and power has been restored from last month’s winter storm, North Texas organizations continue to help families who are still in need of basic necessities.
People at Destiny Pointe Christian Center said they typically offer thousands of people food at each of their food drive events throughout the pandemic, and the need hasn’t slowed down.
After weeks of a winter storm, families in Arlington are still struggling and in need of food and water as they try to recover.
Pastor Renee Fowler Hornbuckle said, "We hope we give a little glimmer of hope somewhere."
Since the start of the pandemic, Destiny Pointe Christian Center has been operating dozens of food drives to get people through tough times.
Hornbuckle said, "Believe it or not, here we are several weeks out from the arctic storm, and people still do not have adequate drinking water or cooking water."
Now, they are helping people to people get through another crisis, as last month’s winter storm left thousands without basic necessities, like food, power, or water. Struggles some families are still dealing with.
