The owner of a store in Houston called Gallery Furniture is letting people stay overnight to get out of the cold. He goes by the name “Mattress Mack,” and he’s known for this kind of thing. He also used his stores as shelters after Hurricane Harvey in 2017. And the same year, he served Thanksgiving to 5,000 people.
A guy in Austin named Ryan Sivley has been driving around in his truck, looking for cars stuck in the snow, and helping people get them out. He also gives people rides if they need one. In just two days this week, he helped over 140 people . . . 98 on Monday, and another 47 on Tuesday.
