TVFD is seeking donations of supplies to send down to the Harvey victims. We will gather supplies for the next 2 days, then take it or send it all south this weekend. We were so blessed to have so many come together to help us put Turkey back together after our storm, and would like to pay it forward. We would like to try and get supplies to some of the smaller coastal towns who haven’t gotten as much press (and as much help) as the big cities. Little towns like Turkey.
Please contact a TVFD member if you would like to drop off a donation, and we will meet you at the fire station or arrange pickup. You can also call/text 806-402-0120 or 806-402-0617.

Diapers, baby wipes, diaper cream
