Garland will continue to offer bottled water Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. via a drive-thru process at the Central Library at 625 Austin St.

The City of Richardson reports that most municipal facilities and services are open and operating normally.

The American Red Cross and the Salvation Army can be reached by texting “SHELTER” and zip code to 43362 (for Spanish REFUGIO and zip code to 43362) for more information about temporary shelter.

The Network of Community Ministries can help provide temporary relocation assistance, access to plumbing and auto repair, as well as food and clothing. Network also has resources to help residents with emergency utility assistance.

The Richardson ISD Council of PTAs operates The Clothes Closet on Belt Line Rd. across from RHS to provide any student in need with a wardrobe and toiletries. Contact your school counselor to set up an appointment at The Clothes Closet.
