From Donna Conrad and Dianne Stimson:
I want to Thank everyone that donated the hygiene items for the people in Bastrop . With your donations, we were able to fill the back of Ken Rodd's truck up. Ken then took the items to a drop off post in Austin and they where then taken to Bastrop.
Thank You and God Bless you all.
