Beyoncé hasn’t been shy about how much she loves her home state Texas. The singer has given the Lone Star state a shout out in songs like “Formation” and “Flawless (Remix),” where she raps “I’m Texas forever, like Bun B,” and in 2020 she teamed up with fellow Houston native Megan Thee Stallion for a remix of the hit song “Savage.”
Now her foundation, BeyGOOD, has teamed up with Adidas and the disaster relief charity Bread of Life to help Texans affected by the severe winter storms that swept across the South in February 2021. According to Variety, the organizations are promising grants of up to $1,000 to anyone who’s been left without power, heat, or water due to the harsh weather conditions, if they apply through the Disaster Relief Assistance Application Form.
“Vist @BreadofLifeH for more information on assistance. We send our prayers to those impacted by the winter storm,” the BeyGOOD account tweeted on Feb. 18, 2021.
Beyonce's foundation has worked in the Houston area before
“BeyGOOD and Adidas are working with Bread of Life to bring urgent relief to those suffering as a result of the winter storms,” Beyoncé’s organization BeyGOOD’s accompanying message read. “If you are in Texas, or any state affected by these storms, you can apply for assistance at breadoflife.org/disasterrelief.” Bread of Life is also looking for donations so that they can continue to provide disaster relief.
Per Variety, the foundation BeyGOOD has worked with Bread of Life before on “anti-hunger initiatives.” The organization has also previously helped with causes like “COVID testing, small business assistance, and hurricane assistance” in the Houston area, as well as supporting Black colleges on a national scale.
As CNN reported, millions in the South are still under a hard freeze warning, and at least 38 people across the country have died due to the harsh conditions since Feb. 11, 2021. Nearly half of all Texans have faced disruptions to their water supply, and many have had to boil any water they wish to use. At one point, 4.5 million homes in Beyoncé’s home state were without power, according to PowerOutage.us.
