The Beauty for Ashes drive is gathering needed supplies to fill an 18 wheeler and send it to victims of the Bastrop fire.
Fifteen hundred homes were lost in the fire which covered roughly 50 miles in Texas. The donation drive will take place from Friday thru Sunday at the La Placita shopping center off of Ruben Torres. Drop off times for this weekend are from 9 AM to 8 PM and on Sunday from Noon until 8 PM. Items that are needed for the victims are cleaning supplies such as trash bags, rakes, water, non-perishable food items, school supplies, toiletries and baby items.
Organizers of the event stress clothing is not needed and the goods are expected to reach Bastrop victims by Tuesday afternoon.
