The First Baptist Church in Silsbee and KGHY 88.5FM Radio within the church have made it a common practice to do some fundraising twice a year.

Amid all of the devastation with flooding around Southeast Texas and along the Sabine River east of Silsbee bordering Louisiana, the group decided to come together to lend a helping hand.

On Tuesday, the church and radio station began taking donations of non perishable food, water, drinks, paper goods, and similar items for displaced victims in need.
