Winter Storm Uri & How to Support DCFOF Clients 

Winter Storm Uri has altered the lives of so many within our community and has largely affected survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. The financial impact of not being able to work for several days due to snow and freezing temperatures has created an additional obstacle for our clients who are already facing many hardships. Many have been left with mounting bills, increased utility bills, home repairs due to storm damage and some have completely been displaced from their home. Simply put, many of our clients are in need of clean water, basic necessities and financial assistance.  

Denton County Friends of the Family has been working non-stop pre and post Winter Storm Uri by answering calls and texts on the 24-hour crisis line, gathering resources to make sure our clients immediate needs are met, but we still need your help! 

We have heard the call from our amazing community asking “How can we help?”. For those looking to support our clients, here are the ways you can help. 

  • Monetary donations to help with utility bills and other bills 

  • Bottled water  

  • Grocery gift cards (Kroger, Walmart, or Target) 

  • Gas gift cards or Uber gift cards 

  • Non-perishable food items (items that require little water to make the meal) 

  • Diapers and wipes (diapers in sizes 4 – 6 are most needed) 

  • Baby food and formula

You can drop off items here: Upscale Resale | 920 Dallas Dr. | Denton, TX 76205 | Monday – Saturday 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM 

Thank you to our supporters who have helped us during these unprecedented times, and a special thank you to the donors and Denton Grassroots Water Crew for donating 80 cases of water for our clients.
