By donating here, you can help the fire departments in the impacted area, 78 percent of which are volunteer, recover financially and continue to help those in need. All proceeds will go toward an immediate relief fund.

The Texas Fire Marshal’s Office is also requesting that any unused firefighter or EMS T-shirts be donated so they can be distributed specifically to firefighters, paramedics and their families in need.
