If you'd like to help the thousands of wildfire evacuees, the Texas Department of Public Safety encourages you to make cash donations to organizations you know.
They say cash donations are the best because they provide flexibility to help victims of disasters in rapidly changing situations.
They say it's the easiest donation to transport and deliver, especially in areas where roads, bridges and buildings have been destroyed.
