On Monday afternoon, as Hurricane Beryl came into the Texarkana area, many houses and businesses were affected in the Beverly neighborhood in Texarkana, and they need help from the community. 

The City of Texarkana Texas and the Believe in Beverly Neighborhood Association have teamed together to collect donations at the Beverly Community Center at 901 Lumpkin Street in Texarkana, Texas, following Monday's storms.

Several homes and businesses in the Beverly community were affected. As the clean-up of the debris and assessing the damage continues, the families in that area need resources. Items that are desperately needed include bottled water, non-perishable food items, and toiletries.
