I know all of us are wondering how we can be of service to those affected by the tornadoes that went through the Rowlett area Saturday evening, so the Town of Flower Mound is currently collecting gift cards at all fire stations, the Police and Courts Building, the town library and Town Hall through January 6th at 5:00pm.
Gift cards to places such as grocery stores, Walmart and Target would be especially helpful to these people as they try to get back on their feet.
In addition to collecting gift cards, the Flower Mound Police and Fire Departments have been assisting with search and rescue efforts, as well as staffing the Glenn Heights Emergency Operations Center.
As of right now, first responders are still advising that everyone stay clear of the affected areas so that they can continue their search and rescue efforts.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected – and we encourage you to help out if you are able.
