Helping hands still needed in Anton, Texas.
The following is from Charlie Brown our Disaster Coordinator.
Hello, all, this is Charlie Brown requesting your help in forming and organizing teams to help in rebuilding projects in Anton, TX. As a reminder, last July, a severe wind/hail/rain event over 3 consecutive nights hit the small town of Anton, TX (about 25 miles NW on U.S. 84) resulting in lots of damage.
With the improving weather, the South Plains VOAD group (of which we are a part) is seeking teams of people to help with the tasks at hand. Please look at the summary that follows to see if you can help this segment of the population (these are U.S. Veterans) on a Saturday or convenient date and report back to me:
Attach is the Detailed Cost Estimate for veterans Richard Hanna, George Bradley and Isabel Alvarado for assistance through the Home Depot. Please provide this info at the VOAD meeting.
- Richard Hanna only needs the windows, exterior painting and some roofing for the shed. Need someone to present to Home Depot.
- Isabel Alvarado was assisted with the roof replacement by VOAD Funds and attach is the cost estimate for windows from Home Depot. Need someone to present to Home Depot.
- George Bradley will get assistance through HOME DEPOT as per our last VOAD meeting. Need someone to present to Home Depot.
- Haven’t ordered 4 windows for Jose Amalla. (Estimate $400.00 for all four)

- Isabel Alvarado roofing replacement is in process and the windows, painting and carpet will be purchase by HOME DEPOT. A see attach detail cost estimate.
- Lori Burt needs help installing the windows. Question arose if we could pay a contractor to just replace the glass do to aluminum windows being good. Use windows elsewhere if do.
