Update from Brad Pack on Bastrop.
We need to make sure that Posts in the
10th District know that they can follow what is happening in Bastrop by going
on facebook to American Legion Post 533 page. Click Here
They are giving updates and
the needs that they have. Also we need to let them know that the drop off
point for items is Post 83 in Austin. The address for the Post is 4401 E.
St Elmo Road. The SAL is able to get things in because a member lives in
Bastrop, but works in Austin. You may be able to get into Bastrop and
Post 533 if you tell them at the check point you are taking things to drop off
at Post 533. Brad suggest that gift cards to Walmart are a good idea so
that individuals can get what they need. I know Post 76 is helping in the
effort and I know that many Post are ready and willing to help in any way they
can. We also need to look to the future when the fire is over in helping
the community recover.
