PORTLAND, Texas — Residents in one Portland neighborhood are stepping up to help their neighbors in need after the Texas winter storm.

After three women found out that many people were unable to get help from a food truck that went through their area, they decided to stepped up and set up what they are calling a "Community Blessing Table".

At the Community Blessing Table, they are offering food and other needed items for free to anyone who may need it.

"When Marissa suggested this, I thought this was a great way for us to give back to the community, you know, for the people who didn't have food or necessities, said Stephanie Gomez, one of the organizers.

The table is set up outside their home, and is open to everyone.
