Low-Income Families Affected by Dallas Tornado in need of Help this Holiday Season

DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – A well known North Texas organization is reaching out to low-income families impacted by the EF-3 tornado that ripped through the Dallas area in October.

Urging North Texans to not forget their neighbors and local schools, churches and businesses who are still struggling after the tornado, Unite Greater Dallas has launched a relief effort this holiday season. The effort will include accepting donations and making sure impacted areas receive the help they need.

According to Unite Executive Director, Rebecca Walls, the recovery for the hundreds of families who were displaced in October’s devastating tornado becomes more personal as the holiday season nears.

“There are families living in hotels, with friends and family or who have been temporarily uprooted out of our city,” said Walls. “Damage to schools has made transportation and school involvement a challenge for many families and many places of businesses were destroyed leaving hundreds without work at the holidays.”

Anyone wishing to help out is urged to get more information about relief effort here.
