A Temple, Texas Hospital is Helping with Robinson Family Farm Fire Relief
Both Robinson Family Farm in Temple, Texas and people who were affected by the fire that took place on October 15th of this year are still navigating the unknown. While the organization has announced their steps moving forward, individuals who lost cars and other items are still searching for ways to replace what was lost when their vehicles were burned in a blaze in the local attraction's parking lot.
One specific item some may be desperately missing is car seats for smaller passengers who aren't big enough to sit in a normal seat. To help alleviate the stress some may be feeling from trying to repurchase said car seat, a hospital in Central Texas has stepped in to aid families.
McLane Children's Hospital's Donations Of Car Seats
Our news partners at KWTX have the story of the hospital assisting the families with making sure their little ones get from one place to another in the safest way possible. The seats, according to the Trauma Program Manager at the hospital, Sarah Wheat, were made available from an unmentioned donor, who also helps provide car seats in case of car accident.
Wheat mentioned to the news organization that she had left Robinson Family Farm before the fire, which at the time of writing still has no stated cause. One of the individuals who received a car seat was Isela Rebolledo. Her 16 month old's car seat was lost in the fire as well as her vehicle.
Rebolledo was waiting for drinks with her family when the fire ignited. She and her family are thankfully safe, but are handling the tough task of replacing everything lost in the car.
Others Donating To The Cause
KWTX also mentioned that members of community banded together to help those in need after the fire. Some donations included used car seats. However, as mentioned by KWTX, some experts encourage families to not place their child into an already used car seat, for safety reasons.
Johnson Brothers Ford was also mentioned, as they donate new car seats to McLane Children's Hospital as well.
It's amazing what a community can do when it comes together. Thank you McLane Children's Hospital!
