Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in Texas this weekend helping distribute supplies and raise more money to help those who are suffering from one of the worst week’s in the state’s history. So far her fundraising efforts have helped bring in $3 million. Today she wrote, “I can’t believe we’ve surged past $3 million for Texas! Houston Food Bank is using resources like these to try to get 30,000 meal boxes out in the next TWO days. They’re just 1 of 12 Texas orgs were now partnering with.”
We hit $3.2 MILLION in Texas relief support last night!
The bank REALLY needs helping hands.
