Dallas Shows Just How Big Texas Hearts Are After Tornado
Since Dallas was hit with extreme weather on December 26th, many citizens have found themselves displaced and in need as a result of the disastrous 200 mile per hour winds. However, the entire community has pulled together to support one another, with some incredible results.
An unofficial Facebook page has been set up to create a network, which aims to let volunteers know how they can best contribute, and an array of restaurants and shops has been offering free food, including one outlet ignoring their usual Sunday closing hours to provide sandwiches for victims of the tornado and first responders.
The American Red Cross relief effort has received over $100,000 generous donations, and even pets have not been forgotten, as Rowlett resident Brani Hurst describes, “This is an amazing community… Many restaurants and grocery stores have been giving away food to those affected, complete strangers have opened their homes and have been searching for missing pets- such an outpouring of love!”
Volunteers organised patrols to neighborhoods that have sustained damage to help bring lost pets back to their families. Watch the video to see the tearful moment Comia Peoples was reunited with her dog Lexi.
