Update, March 30, 2022:

Wildfires are burning in central Texas: the Carbon, Gorman, Eastland areas and the newest wildfire has started in Coryell County and is 0% contained. NALC Disaster Response has delivered 4 truckloads of hay and Peace Lutheran Church in Clifton Texas is delivering feed and fencing. Thousands of cattle were turned loose to save them from the fires and they now need fed and fenced in again. Your help is needed! Please send donations to: NALC Disaster Response, P.O. Box 860565, Minneapolis, MN 55486.


Update, March 24, 2022:

The rain out in the area was fairly light, so the Eastland fire is considered 70% contained today. The rain wasn’t enough to totally put it out. That area is still in a red flag condition even after the rain that did fall. Everything is still very dry, and it is windy. We pray that it does not get out of hand again.

Update, March 22, 2022: 

Up to 108,000 acres of land has been destroyed throughout Texas in the past week as wildfires continue to go untamed.

Hay, grain and fencing is desperately needed in Gorman where distribution is happening at the Gorman Milling Co. The feedlot in Eastland is holding over 350 cattle that were turned loose to save them from the fires and hay and grain is desperately needed in Eastland for these cattle.

If you are able to donate hay and/or, please deliver it to Gorman or Eastland.  Any monetary donations will be used to purchase fencing for local farms and ranches.
