United Way And Churches Develop Plans For Relief Efforts

United Way and local churches met to discuss the relief efforts for local fireman and develop plans for long term recovery efforts for families affected by the recent fires.

The meeting was chaired by County Judge Woodrow Gossom and United Way CEO Diana Phillips. Participants included Interfaith Ministries, Red Cross and many local churches.

James Earl Montgomery, local Red Cross volunteer, reported that volunteer firefighters in the Possom Kingdom area will be replaced by federal fire fighters as of midnight tonight. However, local and volunteer firefighters in Wichita and surrounding counties continue to battle fires in the area.

Area churches are asked to contact the Red Cross if they are available to assist with meal preparation for fireman. Call 2-1-1 to donate household items or if available to help with clean up or construction. Monetary donations are needed at this time. Checks can be made to American Red Cross,(designate to local disaster) North Texas Area United Way Fire Relief or Interfaith Ministries Fire Relief.

For more information call 2-1-1 or United Way at 322-8638.
