TAMPA (WFLA) – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are donating a new roof to a women’s shelter in Texas that was damaged by last week’s deadly storm.
The money from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came as a surprise to Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas which said the money would replace the roof at the organization’s transitional housing facility and other “immediate needs” to continue assisting women and children escaping domestic violence.
Amy Norton, the shelter’s senior director of fund development, told CNN the shelter’s roof caved in, pipes burst and furniture was destroyed, though, luckily, no one was injured.
Millions of Americans lost power and water after a deadly record-breaking deep freeze began last week.
At least 69 deaths across the U.S. have been blamed on the blast of unseasonable weather.
