Round Up of Texas Wildfire Relief Efforts

Marymakesdinner offers a really thoughtful and helpful roundup of Texas wildfire relief and how to pitch in.
 Texas has been hit hard, and I know that a lot of us here are feeling a bit helpless at the moment.  I'd like to urge anyone reading my blog to please take a moment to think about how you can help.  The Red Cross of Central Texas is currently collecting donations to aid in relief, but many other organizations are also busy collecting items necessary to shelters and firefighters.  Things like canned food, bottled water, clothing and personal care items are in high demand.  The following list highlights some of the drives going on in our area.  Please take the time to make a donation, wether it be in money, food, or other items.  After looking at the lists, check around your home for things that you can donate, and drop them off at a collection point.  This small errand can make a huge difference when repeated by many.
