One Week Later - Still No Monetary Donations

It's been exactly one week since two Wagoner families lost everything they own in a house fire. I set up a benefit account at First Bank and Trust in Wagoner called, "Benefit Fund for Rankin Family Fire Disaster."  I was required to make an initial deposit to open the account.

I called the bank Friday morning at 9:45 to check the balance. I am extremely disappointed to report that one week after the fire disaster, there have been no other deposits made to this account.

I spoke with family members Wednesday night. They said they have clothes for the children, but have not yet secured a house to rent.  And, of course, they also had to endure the robbery of their burned out house. Thieves took the washer & dryer, furnace, hot water tank, air conditioner unit, and the bicycles and lawnmower that were stored outside!

If you would like to donate to help these families, please send your check (in any amount) to

Benefit Fund for Rankin Family Fire Disaster
c/o First Bank and Trust
111 S. Casaver Ave
Wagoner, OK 74467

Donations in any amount will be appreciated.
