Council Member Bellows-LeMense is organizing a drive this weekend to collect supplies for the victims of the West explosion.
Her email is below. Samantha, and perhaps others, will be driving the supplies up to Waco on Monday.Collection will be at City Hall Saturday from 10:30 to 4:00 and on Sunday from 9:00 to 3:00
Items that are being requested:Trash bags for the incredible clean-up ahead (the really tough ones)Hand sanitizersSports drinks (gatorade) or powdered sports drinksBottled Water – by the case
Diapers (including adult sizes)Diaper wipesBaby formulaother types of baby stuff
Toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, anything)Toilet paperUnderwear (new and in a package folks – so not the time to be cleaning our your drawers)Non-perishable food itemsBlanketsPillows, sheets, etc.
Dog and Cat food
Minor medical supplies – large band-aids, gauze pads, alcohol (anything to take care of minor wounds from glass, etc.)
School Supplies!The blast took out a school. So anything will help here.pens, pencils, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, rulers, anything along these lines(I saw the pictures. The roof has collapsed on the school, so just anything along these lines are going to help)
No cash donations are being accepted. But there is being a call put out for gift cards specifically from grocery stores and home supply stores.
And just use your imagination – what would you need most if your house was suddenly gone….
I also imagine that Samantha is going to need some help with empty boxes to contain all this stuff. So if you have any of those – bring them on.And she will most certainly need help sorting the tons of material that all of you are going to be donating…
Thanks ahead of time for your help. I know this community and I know you are going to do all you can to pitch in.And – of course – move this email along to ALL of your contacts !!!!
LilaPS – next time you run into a firefighter, police officer, or EMS – you might want to give them a hug.

    We’ve just learned that there have been last minute changes to the access road transition that starts tomorrow. The updated schedule, as we know it, is below.
    1) The northbound frontage road (from Kyle Parkway to Center St.) will begin the ONE-WAY transition starting tomorrow, Tuesday, April 9, 2013, and continue through Wednesday April 10, 2013. **The southbound frontage will remain TWO-WAY during this time.
    2) The southbound frontage road will begin transitioning to ONE-WAY on Thursday, April 11, 2013, and continue through Friday, April 12, 2013.
    3) The Old Hwy 81 portion from Center St. to Martinez Loop will remain TWO-WAY at all times and is not planned for change. If you head north on Old Hwy 81 from Center St., you will come to a “Tee” at Martinez Loop. At this newly installed Tee, traffic will either have to turn west to enter Martinez Loop or turn east to enter the southbound frontage road.
    We will keep you updated on any future changes. The schedule and updates can be found at
