As you have more than likely heard, the Canton area was devastated by tornadoes April 29, 2017.  If you are interested in helping that area via labor, donations or your time, here is some information:

The staging area is at the Canton Fairgrounds.  If you want to help in any way, please call  903-502-0151 and see how you can help.  There are all types of clean-up efforts going on, food service, and collection of necessary items.  The Mayor of Canton, Lou Ann Everett, emphasized to please call that number first as they are the “control booth” for all of the volunteer efforts.  They do not need water, food, or clothing donations because they have no space to store those items at the moment.

You may also access Mayor Everett’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/laeverett1.  There are updates being posted there which include:

  1. Canton/Van Zandt County Tornado relief fund for donations:  VZC Tornado Relief Fund, First State Bank, P. O. Box 428, Canton, Texas 75103.
  2. Facebook page for radio station KWJB 95.1 The Bee has information.
  3. Canton Animal Shelter for rescued animals:  903-567-4880 or 903-603-5024.

Please keep all of these folks in your thoughts and prayers, and if you feel you can help in any way, hopefully this information will give you some direction.
