A supply drive to aid Webber Falls, Oklahoma, area residents trying to recover from historic flooding is underway in Lamar County.

Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop kicked off the supply drive last weekend and within 24 hours already had eight pallets of water, plus hygiene supplies, on the way to Oklahoma.

“It blew us away how quickly this county came together to get supplies for Webber Falls,” said Adopt-A-Cop president Amanda Willows. “We didn’t expect to send supplies so soon but American Towing called us immediately and said they’d take a load up and donated multiple pallets of water.” 

The next load of supplies is scheduled to leave Sunday, June 2nd, so there is still time to donate if you feel compelled to.

Items needed is bottled water, hygiene essentials, mops, towels, dog/cat food, brushes/combs, disposable cups/plates/utensils, non-perishable food

Those wishing to donate can drop items off at American Towing, located at 1840 NW Loop 286 in Paris, Everett Toyota or any Paris Fire Station. 

“My heart broke when I saw the devastation caused by these floods and storms and the severe weather just keeps coming to the affected areas,” said Willows. “All those impacted have a very long road ahead of them.”

Willows wanted to thank all those who have donated so far.

“Special thanks going out to Chad & Ann Gabeline, American Towing & Recovery, Gabeline Towing, Ronald Wiggins, Jason King, Casey Ward (CLAW Enterprises), Cameron Gose (CG Farms), Johnny Theissen (Load Trail), Craig Burns (North Texas Fab, LLC), American Trailer Sales & Service, and the numerous amazing citizens who donated for our neighbors in need.”
