Fundraiser for Kilgore Explosion Victims

The community of Kilgore came together today to raise money for those who lost their homes in the Lamb Fireworks explosion.

Several organizations set up at the Kilgore Wal-Mart Supercenter to take donations for displaced families, whose homes were damaged or destroyed in the blast. There was a silent auction of donated items, as well as hot dog sales, all to raise money. Many in the community came to give what they could.

Organizers hoped to raise $5,000 dollars for explosion victims.
