Texas Wildfires: Montgomery County Firefighters Needs

I just received a forwarded email from a good neighbor, and I thought I would post it on the blog. There are literally hundreds of firefighters nearby who are keeping our local fires under control. So many of these brave people are volunteers, and many of them are from other states and U.S. territories. If you would like to help with any of their needs, please see below. I’m sure they will appreciate any of these items. This would be a great project for a scout troop or a neighborhood group or civic club. Let’s show our support and appreciation. Where would we be without the firefighters?
