Several businesses and organizations are picking up the pieces this week after last week's arctic blast left widespread damage in its wake.

Facilities operated by Genesis Women's Shelter in Dallas sustained considerable damage. That includes Annie's House, where furniture, carpeting and drywall were heavily damaged by water due to pipes bursting.

Amy Norton with Genesis Women's Shelter says renovations will likely cost at least a million dollars, and people everywhere have offered to help.

And some of the people making donations includes the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Megan Markle.

Reports say they're donating an undisclosed amount of money to, among other things, replace the roof at Annie's House, through the Archewell Foundation,

'Today, the news of our damages reached Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! Through their nonprofit, they are supporting us by replacing the roof at our transitional housing facility & helping us meet our immediate needs. THANK YOU, ARCHEWELL FOUNDATION!' the shelter tweeted Sunday evening.

"In spite of the devastating winter storms here in Texas, our hearts have been warmed by the support and generosity of people from all 50 states and five foreign countries," said a statement from Jan Langbein, CEO of Genesis Women's Shelter.

Norton says all the repairs at Annie's House will take a while to complete.
