Birdwell cites “overwhelming support”, asks that donated items for West be suspended

According to Chris Watson, an organizer involved in local efforts to transport donated items to those affected by the tragedy in West, Sen. Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury) is asking that items already donated be sent, but that further collections be suspended. Birdwell reported that there has been “overwhelming support” for the community near Waco that was devasted by an explosion Wednesday night at a fertilizer plant.
