Donations; such as non-perishable food items, clothing, pet food and toiletries, are being accepted at the Baptist Student Ministry on Armstrong, as well as the Newman Center on Corral. If you are able to give, please lend a hand to those who have lost everything.
The resiliency of our great state will stand strong through this devastation.
