Good afternoon all! It’s incredible to see the city of Waco come together to serve our brothers and sisters from West. Our community’s response has been inspiring.
In order to most effectively and efficiently continue to serve the victims from West, please join and like the Facebook group West, TX Volunteer Efforts: https://www.facebook.com/groups/186936951456721/?fref=ts
This group has been established so that volunteers can continually update the community on the most pressing needs at Blair’s Cove Apartments.
This apartment complex is currently housing 50+ residents from the explosion in West and is taking food, water, blankets, toiletries, and cardboard boxes as donations.
As we hear more from the owners of the apartments about the most pressing needs, this Facebook group will be updated. Therefore, please check it regularly as we want to ensure that we are best serving our brothers and sisters in West.
A quick update – the need for blood donations has been met! Radio stations have been reporting lines that go outside the doors of donation sites, even with the rain. Kudos to you all! The greatest current need is volunteers who can help box and organize all the supplies that have been donated at Blair’s Apartment.
Also, the Blair’s Cove Apartment staff asks us to spread the word that they have extra rooms available for displaced West residents. We know there are more people in need of shelter; we just need to get the word out that the Blair’s Cove Apartment has more room and is serving as a sanctuary.
Again, thanks again for your collaboration, care and prayers.
We are proud of our city.
–Amber Jekot, Food Planning Task Force
