Donations pour in for West plant victims

By Todd Wills

During this three-game weekend series with the Seattle Mariners, the Texas Rangers have collected tens of thousands of essential items for the West victims and residents that filled two large meeting areas at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington as well as thousands of dollars in gift cards. In addition, some $40,000 in cash donations will go to the citizens of West from Texas Rangers fans and employees and the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.

The Rangers, with the assistance of the Fox Sports Southwest Fan Express, are planning to deliver the items collected this weekend to West, Texas during this upcoming week. More information will be announced when it is available.

Carter BloodCare reported that 80 donors were processed during today’s blood drive at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The number of units of blood drawn today equates to over 200 lives saved.
