The First Presbyterian Church of Smithville is organizing a plant giveaway for survivors of the devastating wildfires that destroyed hundreds of homes in Bastrop county and the surrounding areas last year.
The event will be held this Saturday at the church, located at 300 Burleson St., from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Plants will be given to fire survivors who can show proof of address from before the fires as well as those who have a FEMA number.
The event’s organizers hope that these plants can play a role in restoring Bastrop to its former beauty.
Last year’s wildfires left thousands of people without homes, many of whom were unfairly denied coverage by their insurance companies. If you lost your home in the fire and your insurance company is refusing to cover the damage, contact the Bastrop insurance claims lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-639-8460.
