Red Cross Donations

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - The massive wildfires are prompting a huge outpouring of donations by the Amarillo community.

Officials say people have been dropping off water bottles all night and into the morning.

The shelter has also received help from corporations who brought hundreds of chicken sandwiches, more than 30 pizzas and lots of fresh fruit.

The Red Cross says they are thankful for all the people who helped, but what they really need now is cash.

If you're interested in helping, call their main office at 376-6309.

Also, Amarillo National Bank has set up a benefit account for victims.

They have made a $25,000 donation to the account.

It will be administered through the Red Cross.
