LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

While ranchers in the Panhandle work to recover from last week's devastating fires, people all across the South Plains are lending a helping hand.

Three local shops are partnering together for a raffle to benefit those victims and ranchers affected by other recent fires.

"God's given us a talent and we're just trying to give it back to where it needs to be, is all it is," said Brad Glenn, owner of BG Custom Boots in Lubbock.

Brad, along with his cousin, Dustin Glenn of Plainview, and owner of Flint Boot and Hat Shop, Jared Coffelt, are each donating a custom made item for a raffle to help ranchers in the Panhandle.

"We have a lot of customers in that area, that lost everything. We support them because they support us," Glenn said.

Glenn worked as a rancher with one of the victims of the wildfires, Cody Crockett, for several years.

"My heart just really hurt. I think back to the time when the ranch burnt there in Claude, and that could have so been me, you know," Glenn said.

While those ranchers are dealing with this incredibly hard loss, Brad, Dustin and Jared knew they wanted to help in any way they could.

"I feel like if it was happening to us, they would help out for us," Glenn said.

Creating art, with a bigger meaning, and a greater purpose.

"It's so awesome to be able to know that I can give, in a time in need like this," Glenn said.

The raffle tickets are $100 a piece, and will get you into all three drawings: One for a custom pair of boots from BG Custom Boots, one for a custom made saddle from Dustin Glenn's Custom Saddlery, and one for a handmade hat from Flint Boot and Hat Shop.

All proceeds go to the Working Ranch Cowboys Association (WRCA) Wildfire Fund.

To purchase tickets, you can call Dustin Glenn at (806) 672-0094 or Brad Glenn at (806) 939-5081.

You can also visit one of the following shops to buy a ticket: Flint Boot and Hat Shop in Lubbock, BG Custom Boots in Lubbock, or The Rusty Rose in Plainview.

The raffle drawing will be held on April 1.
