The recent (hopefully once-a-generation) cold wave that caused havoc across Texas left behind damage that didn’t go away when the temperature rose. The infrastructure of the state was destroyed, and many people went for weeks without food, power, or water. Thankfully, some generous people have stepped up to assist, including Travis Scott, whose Cactus Jack Foundation is said to have teamed up with Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner to distribute some 50,000 hot meals to those in need as a result of the catastrophe.

According to its website, Scott established the Cactus Jack Foundation in November of last year with a goal of promoting youth education:

“The goal of the Cactus Jack Foundation is to empower and improve the lives of young people by ensuring their access to learning opportunities and creative tools for long-term success. The foundation believes the youth should not be prevented from attaining their lifetime goal and is committed to extending educational opportunities to all, regardless of their circumstances to achieve their dreams.”
