What is being called the Snowpocalypse of 2021 continues as another winter storm slams into the eastern U.S. Following more than a week of bitter cold and snow, some Western and Southern states are still digging their way out, and more than a half-million people in Texas are still waiting for their power to be restored.
But as freezing conditions continue, various ministries have stepped up to help. Charisma News highlights a few of these here along with ways you can come alongside them with donations to support those most in need.
Today, Feb. 18, Convoy of Hope deployed several tractor trailers full of water and emergency relief supplies to help affected communities around Dallas and Houston. The trucks left for Texas from Convoy’s World Distribution Center in Springfield, Missouri, early this morning.

“Our partnerships with local churches and organizations are essential to our disaster relief efforts,” said Nick Wiersma, vice president of disaster services for Convoy of Hope. “They enable us to respond quickly in times of crisis, and provide aid to those who desperately need it.” Convoy of Hope encourages those who can help by donating to this vital cause to visit this link at convoyofhope.org.
The Salvation Army is also offering assistance in various locations to assist victims of the winter storm, posting on Twitter that it is “opening warming stations in communities where temperatures have reached dangerous lows” and encouraging those who are able to give at SalvationArmyUSA.org.
The Salvation Army is working tirelessly to continue providing the essentials to those in need.
