Beauty for Ashes is attempting to fill a 18 wheeler full of supplies to be sent to the fire victims in Bastrop.

The fire, which started around Labor Day burned intensely for several days after dry conditions and high winds made it difficult for firefighters to extinguish the flames. In all, 50 square mile are now charred black and roughly 1,500 families are without homes. The Beauty for Ashes drive will start this Friday and will hopefully help some of these families get their lives back together.

The donation drive will take place this Friday thru Sunday at the La Placita Shopping Center parking lot off of Ruben Torres and drop off times for Friday and Saturday are from 9 AM to 8 PM and on Sunday from 12 noon until 8 PM.
