SAN ANTONIO – This week’s winter storm wreaked havoc in San Antonio and across the state of Texas.
Millions of people have been forced to survive without power and water for long periods of time.

There are several agencies that are offering assistance to victims. Here’s some ways you can help if you are in a position to do so.
