MATADOR, TX (KCBD) -

Eleven young men living east of the Caprock are working together to help gather hay donations for victims of the Panhandle wildfires.

The young men are from Matador and Paducah. Britt Simpson of Matador is organizing the group's efforts.

Simpson says what started as a Facebook post asking for hay, has now led to collecting a little more than 3,000 bales of hay for their neighbors in need. The hay will be used to help the ranchers whose cattle and livestock were impacted by these devastating fires.

Simpson says the young men never imagined such a wonderful response.

Simpson says the group has already taken two truck loads of hay to a delivery location in Canadian, but they could use more help with transportation of the hay.

If you can help, please contact Britt Simpson at (806) 407-8520.
