Donations to assist families who have been displaced or impacted by recent wildfires in neighboring counties are pouring in as part of a Missouri City partnership with State Rep. Ron Reynolds to collect items for those in need.

Residents and businesses are urged to continue bringing non-perishable food items, toiletries, diapers, and new or gently-used clothing, jackets and blankets to the Fire & Rescue Service Station 1 building. The station is located at Public Safety Headquarters, 3849 Cartwright Rd. Donations will be accepted until Sept. 30 and should be placed in boxes or carrying bags.

No monetary donations will be collected by the city; citizens and businesses interested in giving money should contact the American Red Cross of Central Texas at 512-928-4271 or mail@centex.redcross.org. The agency will handle distribution of donations.
