Disaster ministry helps wildfire victims
Ministry coordinator Mike Baumgartner said 14 families from the Bastrop Christ of Christ lost their homes in the fires.
“We are in the process of clearing those lots plus others,” Baumgartner said.
In addition, the ministry has provided food, water and other necessities to more than 1,400 families and served roughly 7,800 meals to victims and volunteers, Baumgartner said.
“This cleanup process is going to be a long, slow process,” he said. “Most of the slabs have to be removed and new ones (placed) before rebuilding can start.”
