#PrayForThePanhandle: Donations being accepted in Lubbock

(KCBD) -

Right now, donations are being accepted here in the Hub-City, to help those affected by the devastating fires in the Panhandle.

With more than 300,000 acres scorched following this week's fires - a variety of supplies are needed. Not only for humans but animals as well.

We've spoken with several organizers regarding the supplies still needed.

A representative with Texas A&M AgriLife System and Forest Service tells us right now they are in need of supplies to build fences, or donations to buy those supplies.

While Courtney Pace, with the South Plains Veterinary Clinic is organizing the collection of hay to be delivered to ranchers who need it.

She tells us while they are still accepting hay, what they desperately need are truckers to pick up that hay in different parts of the state - and deliver it to the Panhandle.

She tells us right now a large donation is ready for pick-up in Ranger, but needs to be delivered. 

To contact Courtney, call (817) 475-2648. 

Meanwhile, Chance Britt, owner of Britt Trucking and Dirt Contracting in Lamesa, will head north on Monday - and is asking residents here in Lubbock to drop off non-perishable items at three drop-off locations through the weekend. 

Package Plus on 82nd and Frankford, Party Plus Warehouse on 66th and University - and Parent Life Lubbock on 34th, near University. 

The list includes non-perishable food items, protein bars, Gatorade, bottled water, beef jerky, socks & towels, eye drops, baby wipes and Chapstick.

All three organizers are also asking for monetary donations as well.

To safely donate, you can log on to http://wrca.org/. 

Officials tell us a committee will distribute the money where it is needed.
