TYLER, Texas (KETK) – St. Paul Children’s Services will be accepting donations after they lost around 1,000 pounds of food due to the winter storm.

When workers arrived on scene, they found that several pipes were frozen and then busted.

According to a Facebook post, the structural damage ruined a majority of dried goods.

The company found that light fixture that was severely affected, started smoking which possibly started a fire in their food pantry, they said.

“We still have no understanding of how our garage door opened up, but we are thanking the Lord for watching over us and giving us a sign that there was trouble,” they said.

In addition to the food pantry damage, the power outage ruined all of the meat in the freezers. The St. Paul Children’s Services had to discard around 1000 pounds of meat.
