Can You Help? News of Texas’ Devastating Wildfires

These are my neighbors.

Being close and having friends who are effected is heart wrenching.

One friend was able to get all of her cattle and other animals out; another’s animals would not load and they had to leave them.

Their neighbor had called this morning and said his house had just burned.

Can you help?

You can find out how, by visiting these groups.


Online meetings are being held to inform those willing to help.  One is today at 1:00pm CT.  To view it, go to  Another will take place this coming Monday at 7:00pm CT.

I am a member of these Patriot groups in the Houston area. They are collecting resources to assist my neighbors.

And this announcement came in via email, from King Street Patriots.


King Street and Citizen Patriot Response are working together to help fellow Texans who’ve lost everything in wildfires that, as of this posting, continue to burn across Texas. Here’s a full update from CPR – and how you can help:

The Texas Forest Service reports 172 fires covering over 135,000 acres in the past seven days. The worst of these fires is in the central Texas area of Bastrop county, closely followed by fires near Houston and in northeastern Texas.

The Bastrop fire is approximately 34,000 acres in size and has destroyed 785 homes. 5,000 Texans were forced to evacuate. The fire is 30% contained.
