BUDA -- Cabela’s store in Buda is serving as a collection point for donations of relief supplies for those affected by the local wildfires. The donation drop-off site will be on the side parking lot of Cabela’s at 15570 IH-35 South in Buda.

The biggest needs right now for those fighting the fires are bottled water, sports drinks, food bars, body wipes, and towels. Also needed by residents affected by the fires, in addition to bottled water and sports drinks, are: clothing of all sizes, new and in-package undergarments, baby needs (diapers, ready-to-drink formula, wipes, etc.), toiletries, elderly needs, new sheets and pillows, towels, and pet food. Donations of sturdy cardboard storage or moving boxes are also needed for sorting and transporting the donations.

Monetary and perishable-foods donations will not be accepted. Cabela’s encourages potential donors to monitor local media for monetary and perishable-food donation outlets as they become available. There is no need for furniture, housewares, electronics, etc., at this time. Only immediate-need donations are being sought at this time.

Cabela’s employees and other volunteers will be on hand to accept, sort, and package donations for transport to those fighting the fires and those affected by the fires. Drop-off hours are from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

For more information, call Cabela’s at 512-295-1100.
