Amarillo, Texas - A local organization is working to put roofs over the heads of victims of the recent wildfires. The first of nine families being helped by the group called "Acts Community," will move into a refurbished mobile home in just a few weeks.

The home was donated by an Amarillo woman and is being fixed up by volunteers and contractors. It is being paid for by contributions by the community. Chad Conner of Acts Community says, "There's several people out here that lost mobile homes and so this is a really good option for them. By the time we are finished with it, it will be nicer than what they had and it will be completely furnished. They will be able to walk in and just start life again. There was a month there, six weeks that were really tough for them, but this will get them back on their feet and back to where they can just live."

Conner says his organization is barely scratching the surface of how much the victims need. To find out how you can help, visit www.actscommunity.org.
