Uvalde Community Resources
We want to extend our deepest sympathies to the Uvalde community and the families of the 21 victims of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School. Some of you have already made donations, given blood, sent support, or are working directly with the Uvalde community. We thank you for that.
As Texas continues to grieve, some of you have reached out to us for guidance on ways you can help. Greater Houston Community Foundation has curated a list of ways you can provide direct aid to those affected by Tuesday’s shooting. These resources will offer the support that will be needed in the coming days, months, and years to help the Uvalde community recover.
