So, I’m sure the longhorns are grateful for the funds. As well as food, elder care and housing that Bronx Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is coordinating through Act Blue Charities.
Act Blue Charities is working with 9 local Texas organizations–Feeding Texas, Corazon Ministries, Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley, The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center, Central Texas Food Bank, ECHO (Ending Community Homelessness Coalition), Family Eldercare, North Texas Food Bank, and Houston Food Bank–to give direct aid to those most in need. One donation to Act Blue will distribute funds evenly to all 9 orgs.
Within 48 hours, Act Blue Charities has raised $2 million dollars to help Texans thaw out from the ice apocalypse.
