What you can do to help the flood victims in Texas
Dear Fellow Texan,
We have all witnessed record setting rainfall that has led to flooding from North Texas, through Central Texas, down to Houston. Many of us know individuals who have suffered losses because of these storms.
While we can never truly replace what is lost, we at AT&T Texas are working to help these communities pick themselves up and move forward. We understand how critical communication and information is during and after a natural disaster.
Our teams are monitoring our networks to keep you connected and we are doing our absolute best to ensure the severe weather does not disrupt service.
We are proud to announce that AT&T is committing $150,000 to the American Red Cross to assist its relief and recover efforts in Texas. Currently, the American Red Cross is actively helping flood victims in Texas and has opened six shelters around the state located in: San Marcos, Wichita Falls, Wise County, Van, Houston and Corpus Christi.
Those who want to support the recovery efforts can text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10*, visit www.redcross.org, or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donations to Red Cross Disaster Relief can help provide food, water and shelter for those who have had to leave their home.
We hope that you will join us in supporting the American Red Cross relief efforts. Your contribution will help those hard-hit communities and so many others start to recover, rebuild and get back on their feet.
It is tough times like these that test our resolve, resiliency and strength as individuals and as a community. Texans always come through for each other in times of need. And with your help, this time will be no different.
We stand strong with the communities affected by these destructive storms and will continue to stand strong in our efforts to help them recover.
President — AT&T Texas
