Many areas in Texas are still flooding thanks to record-breaking rains over the past month. Here are some places you can donate to help people affected by the flooding.

Let's face it: we got pretty lucky in the South Plains. But so many other places weren't so lucky. Many parts of the state were devastated by the rainfall.

Here are a few places you can donate to help these victims in their time of need.

These are the most common and safe places to donate money. Do what you can; you never know when when you might need help in return.
