Updated information for West, Texas
This email was sent out this morning by our director, Donna Strohmeyer, in response to the amazing generosity of the Tarleton Family concerning donations to the City of West.
Your generosity has been overwhelming over the past 24 hours. We have received a tremendous amount of donations both physical and monetary.
I stated yesterday that we would continue to take donations today (Friday) through noon. Late last night a message was released from the West City Government:
From city gov’t: All the goods donated are wonderful but we have received so much, it has become a problem. At this time there are no real material needs for supplies. What will make the BIGGEST affect, is donate money to the relief at Point West Bank & Trust (254) 826-5333 or State National Bank (254) 826-3741. (Via Hill County Emergency Management)
To honor the wishes of the City of West, we ask that future donations be monetary only. You can bring monetary donations to the Thompson Student Center Information Desk through noon today. Future donations should be made to the institutions identified above.
We will continue to provide updates on how you can provide assistance. All further communication will be posted to the spotlight section of the Tarleton homepage titled Relief for West, Texas.
Once again, the Tarleton family has shown it’s love and support of those in need. Thank you.
