Last night there was a horrible explosion in West, Texas. Because I am only 3 hours away, I think there is a lot we can do to help. For many of us, this is one reason we have a stockpile of goods. Often we can’t help monetarily, but we can donate items.
My blogging friend Dawn, lives up by Dallas very close to West and is doing an awesome job of keeping thing up to date. Head on over to The Frugal Mom for more information.
Here are a few links to check out:

- Crawford said West Intermediate School was destroyed. The high school and the middle school buildings were also damaged and structural integrity will need to be checked. A meeting will be held later Thursday to make plans for housing students for the remainder of the school year.
